Minor in Public Administration

The public administration minor is designed to provide students with an overview of employment in government, public service, and nonprofit organizations. The public administration minor introduces students to core concepts in the field and provides students with the opportunity to develop specialized knowledge in the areas of organizational behavior, management, budgeting, and public policy. This minor is appropriate for students planning careers in public service and nonprofit organizations and for those already employed in these sectors. The public administration minor also provides a foundation for continued studies in public administration, law, and human service disciplines. This minor may be combined with any other major or minor except the public administration major. A minimum of 9 credits must be exclusive to the minor and cannot be counted toward any other majors/minors/certificate programs.
