1 Committed to Excellence in Global Education COLLEGE OF POLITICAL SCIENCE AND PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION Mission Statement The College of Political Science and Public Administration s mission is as follows: The mission of the Department of Political Science is the study of governments and the governing procedures in individual countries and in international bodies such as the United Nations. Irrespective of the unit of government political science deals with, it is primarily concerned with "the authoritative allocation of values" namely, how individuals and groups go about obtaining the most of what they cherish and value. Political scientists study how governments are structured, how governments make decisions, as well as the content of those decisions, and how governments solve social conflicts, and what conditions are most conducive to the orderly process of government. Specifically, political scientists study such phenomena as political parties and voting behavior, public opinion, interest groups, bureaucracies and administrative procedures, national security and international organization, executive politics and legislative behavior, courts and administration of justice, intergovernmental relations, political personality, mass movement, revolution, ideologies, political philosophy, community organization and urban politics, and the expanding field of policy studies. The mission of the Department of Public Administration is to provide high quality academic programs leading to degrees in Public Administration for working adult students and other individuals who wish to further their professional and educational goals. Using innovative methods such as distance-education technologies, the college serves the educational needs of government employees at the local, state, and national levels. It prepares students to give better service to their constituents, as well as teaches them how to better work with highly specialized private sectors. Also, there are courses that prepare the students for participating and operating in the ever-expanding activities of international organizations. Integrating advanced academic theories with current practical applications; the College of Political Science and Public Administration provides individualized degree programs that are specially geared toward working adult students who are under constraints of time and location. Students can thereby achieve their educational goals without the limitations imposed by conventional institutions of higher learning. Toll Free Inside U.S.A.

5 Department of Public Administration DEGREES OFFERED Bachelor of Arts in Public Administration Master of Arts in Public Administration Doctor of Public Administration* Doctor of Philosophy in Public Administration (Ph.D.) Post Doctoral Certificate *Track Degree Program (FTDP); see FTDP policy Concentrations: Accounting, Business Adminis tration, Criminal Justice Administration, Economics, Environmental Management, Finance, Health Care Management, Human Resources Management, Management, Management Information Science, Organizational Behavior, Production/Operations Management, Public Administration, Public Policy, Urban Issues, and Urban Planning. Introduction: In today's societies even in democratic countries such as the United States, governments play the most important role in the daily life of their constituent peoples. The governments, at all three levels of locals, states, and nationals, should provide the appropriate grounds for meeting the never- ending and ever-changing variety of needs of the peoples and growth of the nations. Knowledgeable and updated employees can only accomplish this and administrators running such organizations and working shoulder to shoulder with their counterparts in different industries and businesses who take advantage of the latest available technologies. To this complexity we should add the international dimension and the ever-expanding activities of international organizations. The mission of the School of Public Administration is, therefore, to provide the required administrative knowledge for those self-directed adult students who want to work or continue to work in such public organizations successfully. The nature of the related jobs, however, requires an interdisciplinary educational training. With close cooperation of the school of Business Administration and full support of other schools and departments, such training are well provided through offering flexible highlyindividualized degree programs designed to meet the educational needs of the students who are under time and location constraints. Rather than bringing the students to the classes at a specific time and a specified location, these programs direct the learning process to the student's comfortable place at his/her own convenient time. THE PROGRAM By offering a wide variety of off-campus courses, the School of Public Administration accommodates the selfdirected students with the means to satisfy the various kinds of public sector educational needs that exist at different academic specialization levels. The students who benefit from such a program may fall into one or more of the following groups: Individuals who want to continue full-time employment while earning their degrees. Individuals who have interrupted their college education and find it impossible to return to campus to complete their degree requirements. Military Personnel who are stationed in remote areas. Military Personnel who are not stationed in one location for a sufficiently long period of time. Individuals already established in careers that do not require an academic credential, but need knowledge augmentation for more effectiveness. Students who wish to qualify for admission to graduate programs. Individuals who need academic credentials for their promotions. Students who are pursuing a degree program may complete their degree requirements through a combination of taking correspondence courses at American Global University, independent and guided studies; concurrent classroom courses at accredited institutions, and credit transfers. Credits may be granted for the hours from colleges previously attended as well as for a careful evaluation of documented relevant life learning experiences. Appropriate military and professional educations are also considered in such an evaluation. The program is implemented at three academic levels: bachelor's, master's, and doctoral. UNDERGRADUATE GENERAL EDUCATION COURSE REQUIREMENTS The general education program is designed to ensure that all American Global University graduates have a basic understanding of certain essential areas of knowledge. The general education program sets minimal requirements. Most departments of major study require additional courses in these areas, which are stated under the individual major degree requirements.

BACHELOR OF ARTS IN PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION The program leading to the Bachelor of Arts in Public Administration is primarily designed to provide the student with a solid and well-rounded education in government and public organizations. It prepares the student for professional leadership roles in policy development, planning, and administration in public, human services, and non-profit sectors. The competency that the student acquires is based on the foundation laid by the core curriculum, which include introductory courses in administrative, political, and social sciences, as well as in statistics and research methodologies. Courses in the concentration area corroborate the core and enhance the student's ability to achieve his/her career objectives. The bachelor's degree program begins with General Education courses, advances by core and concentration courses, and is completed with a final research paper, at the end, showing the ability of the student to analyze a problem situation and make an appropriate decision suitable to the surrounding circumstances. I. PREREQUISITES: High School diploma or equivalent and demonstrating the ability to succeed in undergraduate study. II. PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS: The total semester units required for graduation are as follows: unit requirement for general education is dependent upon the past experience of the applicant; 51 semester units in core courses; 21 semester units in elective courses in the area of desired concentration. The student must complete a minimum of 40 units while enrolled at American Global University. Comprehensive evaluation and counseling are most important at this degree level.

Note, however, that: (1) no course in this list which is equivalent to any course included in the student s General Education and core requirements schedule can be taken; (2) offering of these courses are subject to the discretion of the school; and (3) the elected courses must be of an appropriate level and be approved by the student's advisor. GRADUATE PROGRAM MASTER OF ARTS IN PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION Students who have already earned a bachelor's degree and been exposed to the public sector work experience would well fit in the Master of Arts in Public Administration (MPA) program. This program prepares the student aspiring to professional administrative position in the public, private, non-profit, or volunteer sectors. It imparts knowledge of fundamental concepts, theories, and methods in Public Administration and develops in each student the competence expected in at least one area of specialization. This program is especially adaptable to multiple administrator career paths. It enables the students to pursue either a general MPA education or an MPA with emphasis in literally any other subject areas outlined in the "CONCENTRATION" section. Both options, however, require a thesis presenting the results of an original research by each student. I. PREREQUISITES: a) Bachelor's Degree in Public or Business Administration, or a related field, from an accredited or acceptable institution
7 b) Demonstrating the ability to succeed in graduate study at the Master's Degree level. II. PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS: The Master's Degree Program requires 36 semester units above the Bachelor's Degree level. Students with a bachelor's degree other than Public Administration must make up for the training deficiencies by taking additional courses selected under advisement. A min imum of 21 units of graduate work must be completed at American Global University.

DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION The Doctor of Philosophy in Public Administration (Ph.D.) program is designed for proficiency in the field of study. It prepares the students for careers in teaching, research, or higher levels of administrative positions. The educational needs of the positions of the administrators and senior specialists in the public and nonprofit sectors are best met through this program. It provides the quality training in research, analytical ability, and presentation/communication skills needed to meet the expectations at this level. In addition to taking the highest level courses in the related field and passing the final qualifying exam, the student is required to demonstrate achieving mastery beyond the Master's level. Employing research methodologies in an original work and presenting a dissertation representing a significant contribution to knowledge ensures this. I. PREREQUISITES: a) Master's Degree in Public or Business Administration, or a related field, from an accredited or acceptable institution. b) Demonstrating the ability to succeed in the doctoral program. II. PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS: The doctoral program requires 42 semester units above the relevant Master's degree. If the student's Master's degree is not in the same field of study as the doctoral program, the student must make up for his/her training deficiencies by taking the appropriate courses. A minimum of 30 units of graduate work must be completed at American Global University.
