BA Program in Public Administration:
The mission of the BA program in Public Administration is to educate students, and help them develop and enhance knowledge and skills in the discipline of public administration. This includes teaching students to become innovative leaders by developing their managerial and analytic skills, and thereby preparing them for professional success. The program is designed to provide students with in-depth knowledge and training that are geared towards the building of a generalist, academic, professional, and ethical background, and to enhance students’ decision-making, analytical and interpersonal skills. This is to prepare them to enter public, nonprofit and related sectors. We aim at increasing students’ knowledge and understanding of the political, constitutional, legal, economic, social, cultural, and organizational environments that influence the organizations within which they will work.
