Public Administration


Everything we do daily, from the water we drink to the structures we live in, is impacted by government and organizational decisions. Public administrators are tasked with enforcing these decisions, and as leaders, we implement them with fidelity within our communities. Our undergraduate program will help you navigate and succeed in this ever-changing environment. 


Whether you earn your degree online or take courses on the St. Augustine campus, our program will help you prepare for leadership roles in the public, private, and not-for-profit fields. 


Designed for the working professional, you will receive a bachelor of science degree that will teach you management, finance, human resources, ethics, public policy, and grant writing. 


Our professors teach theory, but they have also been practicing leaders and experts in the industries they teach. Our classes are engaging, and our professional networks provide a unique experience for anyone wanting to enhance their career.


Immerse yourself with incredibly well-rounded individuals who care deeply about their future across many backgrounds such as health care, education, nonprofit management, law enforcement, and all levels of government.
