Minor in Public Administration
A minor in Public Administration would fit with a number of academic majors to help a student prepare for a career linking government and nongovernmental agencies. Evangel’s Public Administration program utilizes an interdisciplinary approach offering courses taught by several academic departments, linking knowledge and skills from government, management, business and social needs awareness.
Depending on the academic major chosen, students with a Public Administration minor may enter careers as planners, managers, administrators, nonprofit managers, societal-help administrators and department heads at local, state, federal and international levels. This program will give students a general knowledge of the field of public administration and provide opportunity for an internship that will allow them to tailor their focus in their area of interest.
