Public Administration

Public Administration is "government in action." 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 the enforcement of 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. 

Public Administration Degree Program

Our program will help prepare you for leadership roles in the public, private, and not-for-profit fields and is designed for working professionals.

Your Degree 

You will receive a bachelor of science degree that will teach you skills in management, finance, human resources, ethics, public policy, and grant writing. 

Learning with a Supportive Community

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.

Your Classmates 

You will be immersed with individuals who care deeply about their future and their colleagues creating life-long relationships.
