Public administration courses

Keeping communities running smoothly requires a range of specialized skills. Working in the public sector takes advanced organizational abilities along with an understanding of social, governmental and budgetary issues. Obtaining the unique skills needed to work in these roles takes continued education in these key areas.

Our public administration courses are designed to help you expand your knowledge of management and leadership within government and nonprofit organizations. You can study the basics of government at the federal, state and local level along with the dynamics of political decisions on public policy.

Taking public administration classes can also help you understand budgetary analysis techniques and how to manage accountability. These topics are particularly important for those working in the public arena, especially those that are responsible for making budgeting decisions.

Our public administration classes cover important topics such as:

  • The constitutional rights of public employees.
  • How to manage a diverse civic leadership workforce.
  • The research, design and evaluation of grant writing components.
  • How to create a public-private partnership to deliver goods or services to the private sector.

We also have advanced classes that look at communication for public administrators and data analysis for the purpose of public policy and management. These types of classes can help you gain the skills needed at the managerial level.

You can take individual classes to expand your knowledge in a specific area or use the credit toward one of our degree programs. If you want to use credit earned with us at an outside institution, you need to first check with them to see if the credit is transferable.

We help busy adults get the education they need to reach their professionals goals, even with busy schedules. You can take public administration courses online, from the convenience of your home, doing coursework when it’s right for you.
