College of Professional Studies
Overview

A public administration major is designed to prepare individuals for careers in public service and not-for-profit organizations, and for the further development of those already in professional and para-professional careers.

No matter where your interests lie, you will be expected to have a good knowledge of government, an interest in business and a passion for serving others.

In addition to those who wish to complete a professional degree for a career in public service, the public administration major is recommended for those who seek to pursue a graduate degree in law.
