Requirements for Major
The curriculum for a major in Public Administration has been designed by the faculty to prepare graduates for careers in public service or for graduate work in a Master of Public Administration Program, such as the one at Auburn University. We have designed a program that provides students with a general Public Administration background while also offering some flexibility in course work. You may access a suggested Public Administration course sequence in the bulletin.
Curriculum in Public Administration
POLIÂ 1090 American Government with a C or better is a prerequisite for some higher-level political science courses. A score of 4 or higher on the AP American Government test satisfies the prerequisite requirement. Contact the department chair or program coordinator for further information.
