The collection in Public Administration supports teaching and research through the Ph.D. level. The Certificate in Public Management (CPM) is a program that enables practitioners to acquire additional knowledge and skills in public administration without pursuing a regular master's degree course of study. The CPM program requires managers to complete a sequence of management development and public service-oriented courses. The Master of Public Administration (M.P.A.) program is designed to meet the graduate needs of pre-service and in-service professionals for careers in public management and administration in the public, nonprofit and private sectors. The program emphasizes public management, administrative theory, and practice and policy analysis. The program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration.
The purpose of the Ph.D. Program in Public Policy and Administration is to prepare students for scholarly and leadership roles in government, universities, research organizations, and other settings where knowledge and research skills in public policy and administration are needed. The Ph.D. Program is committed to accomplishing this mission by creating an intellectually vibrant atmosphere for scholarship involving an active faculty from a broad spectrum of academic disciplines and substantial interaction with government agencies and community groups. The Ph.D. in Public Policy and Administration is a degree program of the University's Center for Public Policy. The Center was established to serve as the focus of the University's interdisciplinary efforts in teaching, research, and service related to public policy. The Center, as well as the doctoral program, is designed to involve faculty and academic units from across the university.
