Public Administration

Bachelor of Public Administration

A Bachelor of Public Administration degree prepares students for employment in the public and non-profit sector, by giving them a broad background in the basics of administration, combined with a contemporary focus on urban management, the non-profit sector, tools of analysis, and the role of ethics.

The minimum number of semester credit hours required for the degree, including the Core Curriculum requirements, is 120. Thirty-nine of the total semester credit hours required for the degree must be at the upper-division level.

Core Curriculum Requirements: Students seeking the Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Administration must fulfill University Core Curriculum requirements. If courses are taken to satisfy both degree requirements and the Core Curriculum requirements, then students may need to take additional courses in order to meet the minimum number of semester credit hours required for this degree.
