The mission of the Public Administration Program is to develop and enhance the knowledge and skills of current and future managers in government, nonprofit, and health care organizations.Public administration is the implementation of government policy in the daily lives of citizens. If you study public administration, you will learn how to manage organizations, to analyze the effects of government policies, and to use business and statistical tools to solve organizational problems. If your career goals are to help run government agencies or nonprofit organizations, you may consider studying public administration. It can be fulfilling to contribute to society through a public administration career. However, if you are not motivated by public service, this may not be the right field for you. Even so, a public administration degree will help you to develop career skills like managing, budgeting and conducting research, which you can use in other fields like business. If you choose to study public administration, your curriculum will draw from related disciplines including political science, business management and administrative law. Because these subjects are complex, you can only study public administration at the bachelors, masters and doctoral levels. In fact, most jobs in public administration will require you to earn a graduate degree.
