Public Administrators, Public Administration Degrees, Public Administration Courses


Public Administrators are generally charged with the oversight of a public or non-profit agency, or some portion of the organization. Their job includes developing an understanding of organizations and strategies for producing organizational change; methods for analyzing issues confronting agencies. The Public Sector always involves political and economic perspectives and encourages the analysis of issues from multiple perspectives


The aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks clearly demonstrated the essential nature of Public Agencies.  Although the public instantly thinks of the Police and Firefighters, there were also people working behind the scenes to keep the country moving.  At the federal level, the Federal Reserve was reducing interest rates to keep the economy moving and the Federal Bureau of Investigation was examining evidence. 


State and Local Public Administrators were implementing plans to protect public infrastructure and ensure the Public Safety.  These, and many other functions, provided by Public Services are essential to the smooth operation of the economy and the Health and Safety of its citizens.
