What characterizes public administration in the twenty-first century is the scope and rapidity of change affecting virtually all aspects of governmental activity. Students will gain an understanding of public administration to include, but not limited to, budgets, personnel, policy and procedures and public perceptions of administrative practices within organizations. Additionally, this course will attempt to teach each student the importance of public administration within a democratic society. Student interaction with the instructor and other students is essential in this course. Lecture, discussions, and problem solving individually and in-groups will take place in the classroom. Prior to each scheduled class, the student is required to read assigned chapters and do any written work assigned. Testing will include quizzes, mid-term, and final exam.
