Certificate in Public Administration

Students in this program are supervisors, managers and administrators as well as those seeking to be promoted to those positions. Core workshops and the electives enhance the analytic capability and skill in managing a range of public and nonprofit services, including elected office, public works, social services, health and public safety. Workshops are taught by UWM faculty and ad hoc faculty who are or who have been public managers. The gap between practice and theory is bridged through small group exercises, case studies and the brainstorming of nonprofit and public constraints managers face.

The workshops provide the foundation for understanding decision-making and supervision processes critical to proactive management.

Single courses can be taken without the pursuit of the certificate.
