Minor in Public Administration (18 credit hours)
This minor will be of interest to students who would like to broaden the career opportunities available to them, students interested in public affairs and administration and students in non-traditional programs, such as the BA in Interdisciplinary Studies program, who wish to focus on governmental processes. Students who are also majoring in Political Science are discouraged from minoring in Public Administration. Instead, public administration courses can be incorporated into their major program.
