     It is strongly recommended that Public Administration majors, in consultation with their advisors, select a topical concentration of at least 12 semester hours at the 300-level and above. Concentration courses will be chosen from among the 16 elective hours. With the approval of the student’s advisor, up to four hours from outside the Political Science and Public Administration department may be applied toward the concentration. No more than eight internship hours may be applied to the major. Students considering graduate school in Public Administration should take additional courses in Accounting, Economics and Business Administration.
