Introduction

A minor in Public Service, offered by the School of Public Affairs, will provide needed competencies to a generation looking for meaningful work consistent with their social values. Public Service courses provide students with the skills and content knowledge to work in public, private, and nonprofit sectors and the emerging fourth sector that blends social and environmental concerns with business approaches.  This minor is particularly useful for students majoring in substantive areas (such as environmental studies, education and human development, and criminal justice) who plan on applying their expertise in public service organizations such as governmental agencies or nonprofit organizations.
