About this program

Criminal Justice Administration (BSc)

The Bachelor of Science in Public Administration is designed to provide professional preparation for administrative or managerial positions in public service organizations. The degree program requires:

  1. Completion of a set of core courses common to all public administration students;
  2. A concentration and
  3. Two additional courses for breadth. The Bachelor of Science in Public Administration Degree is a single-field major, which means that students are not required to complete a minor for graduation.

The Minor in Public Administration is designed to provide a basic foundation in public management. The minor is especially appropriate for students who major in the Social and Behavioral Sciences. It is an attractive option to students with majors in fields that lead to public sector employment, like recreation or health science.

In addition to full-time faculty, the department has part-time faculty who are practicing public managers in their areas of specialization. Several of the full-time faculty also have lengthy careers as public managers.

To complement the traditional classroom instruction, the Department of Public Administration and Public Policy offers a number of activities that enhance the total educational experience of students. The department sponsors speakers and professional symposia. The faculty also sponsors the Dominguez Public Administration Association (DPAA), a student club open to all public administration students, and Pi Alpha Alpha, a renowned national honor society for outstanding Public Administration students.
