MPA Courses & Schedules
PADM Courses at UNM & The MPA Program
While all PADM courses are taught face-to-face, the majority of PADM courses use two-way video conferencing technology (ZOOM) to give educational access to students at locations distant from the UNM main campus in Albuquerque. ZOOM connects students with each other and their instructors in classrooms that reach across and beyond the state.
ZOOM is used through a learning management system called UNM Learn. There, students access course content and interact with instructors and classmates using a variety of tools such as email, discussion boards, web pages, web conferencing systems, and multimedia technologies.
The UNM MPA program is not an "online program."
SPA "Online" Courses
Synchronous Online (OSYNC-1) - has fixed meeting times. Students log in at a scheduled time through UNM Learn, often weekly, to participate in the course. For SPA, students eligible for the ZOOM "online" option are distant students enrolled in the MPA program. If you are an Albuquerque resident, then you are not eligible for the ZOOM option.
UNM Online is also available to answer questions by email or phone at firstname.lastname@example.org, (505) 277-8128 in Albuquerque and toll-free at 1-866-869-6040.
