Public Administration

What is Public Administration?

Lehigh’s undergraduate minor in public administration provides students with an education in Constitutional principles; the organization and operation of the national government; and dynamics of power within the U.S. political system.

It also presents the intellectual history of the study of public administration in a manner that is intended to inform career choices for those who might consider public service and provide a broad introduction to the field of public administration. Students gain a comprehensive perspective on the public administration discipline by exploring the pervasive puzzles, ethical dilemmas, and critical issues in governance to date.
