Public Administration

Minors Can Broaden Your Academic Experience

A minor in Public Administration will provide students the opportunity to add a public service perspective to their existing major. A broad introduction to public administration will be provided as well as the opportunity to shape the minor towards a student’s own disciplinary interests such as Criminal Justice or Business Administration. It will also provide students whose major is cognitively related or any student who seeks employment in the public sector an opportunity to add a public service perspective; such as majors in Criminal Justice, Business, Psychology and Media Communication.
