The Public Administration Concentration provides training in the public policy field as well as public management.
The pressure on governments and public departments to improve their performance have reached a new intensity that is unlikely to taper off anytime soon. Public Administration, an interdisciplinary discipline concentration offered within the Political Science and History degree, combines knowledge and experience from the worlds of politics and business. Selecting this concentration enables students to increase their understanding of public organizations and bureaucracies beyond coverage in other political science and history classes.
By combining traditional academics and critical thinking with hands-on training, the Public Administration Concentration coupled with the Political Science and History degree builds upon your academic base to explore career-focused fields in public administration or a customized program design tailored to your specific goals. In between classes, there will
be plenty of opportunities to explore interests beyond public administration, with Boston being just minutes away.
