Department of Public Administration

Welcome to the Department of Public Administration!


The degree to which you are concerned for the common good rather than for your own, is the criterion by which you can judge how much progress you have made.

-St. Augustine


You care deeply about public service.  So do we.

The Department of Public Administration is committed to preparing students to develop the skills they need to become ethical, creative, inclusive, and intelligent leaders in public service. The Department offers courses and programs at both the undergraduate and Master's level, both on-campus and online.  

A distinguishing feature of our undergraduate and graduate programs is the focus on ethical decision-making. Undergraduate and graduate students are exposed to a range of effective practices in the field of public service as well as opportunities for networking and professional development.
