The John Glenn College of Public Affairs offers a doctoral program, three graduate level professional degree programs, two undergraduate programs, and certificate programs. Core courses are typically taught by the core faculty and many of our electives and applied skills courses are taught by lecturers who are able to bring their passion, knowledge, and hands-on experience into the classroom. Classes are offered throughout the day as well as in the evening.

In addition to instructors, Glenn College doctoral students also teach undergraduate courses. Teaching assignments are based on such factors as Teaching Assistant Evaluation(s), subject matter expertise, and satisfactory progress in the Ph.D. program. Generally, Ph.D. students scheduled to independently teach will have successfully completed their comprehensive exams.
Selection criteria for instructors include:
  • relevant professional and/or teaching experience,
  • demonstrated teaching ability (e.g., student and peer evaluations of past courses offered),
  • topical knowledge,
  • educational background, and
  • availability.
Each instructor is observed by a Glenn College faculty or staff member at least once. The Glenn College’s academic and administrative leaders use the peer observation and student evaluations of instruction to evaluate instructor performance at the end of each course offering. These evaluations inform decisions about reappointment and future course assignments.
