Undergraduate Program (Concentration and Minor)

The undergraduate program is a concentration option for a Political Science degree.  Selecting this concentration enables students to enhance their understanding of public organizations and bureaucracies beyond coverage in other political science classes. The concentration offers a unique opportunity to link a liberal arts degree with superior preparation in organizational leadership, analytical skills, and real-world internship experience.

Students interested in pursuing this concentration should select an advisor from the Public Administration faculty as soon as possible.  Please direct all questions about the Public Administration concentration to the Department of Public Administration, Business Administration 215, or contact us via email at pspa@uncp.edu or at 910.521.6637.
