The Public Administration (PA) master's degree programme highlights public administration and informed approaches (i.e. rooted in policy) to social issues.
As a public administrator, you will be expected to understand the complex administrative relations in networks of public and private organisations and their impact on the quality of administration and policymaking. In addition, you must be able to systematically analyse the implications for various values and interests involved and the tension arising between such concerns as decisiveness and democracy. To effectively evaluate problems and design appropriate solutions, you must have the ability to assess existing knowledge at face value and generate new, relevant knowledge. Moreover, you will be able to use that knowledge as a basis for effective recommendations and their introduction/implementation.
