Major Areas of Study: Public Administration

The Public Administration major prepares students to enter the public and nonprofit sector of the economy. Public administration can be distinguished from private administration in at least three ways: public managers are expected to operate in the best interest of the public at all times, public
managers should evaluate success measured against social profit instead of economic profit, and the public managers should be subject to checks by the public since their work is conducted in the public eye for the benefit of the public. Understanding the field of public administration and providing students the tools necessary to be successful after graduation requires students understand both the environment public administration occurs in and the field of study, develop advanced skills, learn appropriate technical skills, and get meaningful training and experience in research and in the field.
