The interdisciplinary program in public policy and administration is designed to provide broad training in preparation for a career with local, state, or federal government in the areas of budgeting, personnel administration, intergovernmental relations, program planning and evaluation, and general administration.
Be careful to meet the prerequisites for all courses. You are encouraged to gain as broad an understanding of politics as possible as political science majors, since politics is a crucial element in public administration.
For further information and advice, consult the public administration advisor in the Department of Political Science.
