Public Administration One Year Technical Certificate

Public Administration

One-Year General Certificate - Curriculum Code 5080

This certificate is designed to provide current information about the field of Public Administration. The purpose is to offer opportunities for individuals to learn how to be effective and efficient in work settings and roles in the public sector or in the non-profit organization. Students who are already employed in those settings can sharpen their skills, acquire new skills and knowledge and participate in practical experiences that will be useful on the job. Students who want to enter those fields will be able to acquire knowledge, develop skills to prepare to work in organizations and institutions or to serve in the public sector. The certificate is designed as a stand-alone certificate. However, students may apply credit earned in this certificate toward credits required to earn the Associate of Applied Science Degree in Public Administration.
