Public Management, Bachelor of Science
The study of politics deals with the ways in which humanity shares and distributes such fundamental values as security and prosperity and seeks self-determination. The Public Management degree combines the study of politics and government with selected courses in business and economics. The program is designed to provide access to jobs in the many activities of modern society in which the public interest and the private domain overlap and coincide. Many students are discovering that public management, applied political science, offers an essential dimension to understanding one’s ongoing struggle with others and oneself. Employment possibilities for those with public management training include opportunities with private enterprise and numerous jobs with local, municipal, county, regional, state, federal, and international agencies. The Public Management program also provides preparation for graduate study in public administration and prospective employment in town, city, and county management.
