Public Administration Concentration
For those who wish to make a difference in local, state or federal government, Saint Joseph’s offers the concentration in public administration. Students will leave Saint Joseph’s prepared for leadership positions and administrative responsibility in public services such as fire and safety management, emergency preparedness, or city counsel.
Public administration can be taken as a concentration within the Bachelor of Science in professional and liberal studies. Grounded in a liberal arts foundation, students are able to gain a broad perspective on the many topics that those in public administration encounter — everything from economic to organizational issues. Courses in leadership development, public policy, government and business, and state and local government provide an understanding of the current state of government, policies and procedures in place today.
