Public Administration Minor
As UNO continues to serve as the Nebraska's premiere metropolitan university, the public administration minor exemplifies UNO’s metropolitan and collaborative extension to the community.
Along with the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) strategic plan, the School of Public Administration upholds the esteemed pleasure of placing students first and achieving academic excellence all while engaging with the community.
By entrusting students with the necessary information to lead, manage, and ignite change within the public sector, our university continues to rise to the forefront of community engagement.
Upon completion of the public administration minor, students will have the necessary skills needed to work in the public sector. The minor is designed to accomplish the following:
- Describe the political context of public administration as well as the historical development and evolution of these institutions of the United States;
- Explain the role of public administrators in policy development and policy implementation;
- Empower future leaders to serve communities, to advance the common good and to effect positive change; and
- Develop students to become professionals who are equipped with the skills needed to manage at all levels of government (local, state and federal) as well as nonprofit organizations.
To continue the momentum of serving the UNO campus, the greater Omaha community and beyond, there is a great need to empower our students and the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to lead the future of the public sector and public service. The public administration minor is open to students in any discipline area at UNO.
