The program seeks to develop the students' ability to think critically, to acquire analytical skills, and to conceptualize at a high level. While the above statement could be considered as related only to our preservice students, it also is applicable to in-service persons who seek to re-tool or improve their chances for promotion or to improve the quality of their performances.
The mission of the Public Administration Department is to educate our students in the areas of public administration, offer training in specialized areas that build on the basics of public administration, and enhance the professional development of students through on-going linkages with public organizations at the federal, state, local, and international levels.
