Coordination: Liberal Arts and Sciences Advising and Counseling Office and the Department of Public Administration, Department of Political Science
The interdisciplinary minor in public administration is designed to allow liberal arts students, primarily in the humanities and the social sciences, to develop a knowledge and an appreciation of basic issues and concepts in public administration. The student is introduced to a basic understanding of contemporary problems encountered in the administration of public agencies. The minor is not intended to provide vocational or professional competency.
Six or more semester hours in the minor must be taken at NIU.
