GOVT050 CM - Introduction to Public Administration

This course examines both the theory and practice of public administration within a democratic polity. Students will explore the difficult trade-offs involved in the implementation of democracy: beyond questions of organization and management, the course engages central dilemmas in the meaning of ‘rule by the people.’ Elected representatives do not actually perform all of the policy work; this course covers who is doing the work, how they do the work, and how their actions are directed and constrained by the public purpose of the work.

Prerequisite: GOVT 020 CM  or instructor permission.

Offered: Every year

Credit: 1

Course Number: GOVT050 CM
