POS 545 - Public Administration
This graduate-level course is designed as a broad introduction to the field of public administration. Public administration is a field that focuses on organization and management practices in collective or public settings. For the purposes of this class, "public" is broadly defined, and refers to both governments and non-profits, as well as organizations with a public purpose. We will examine five major topics over the course of the semester: the job of the government, how government is organized, civic service and the people in government organizations, making and implementing government decisions, and public management in a democracy. Cross-listed with POS 445. POS 200 recommended.
