Public administration , the implementation of government policies. Today public administration is often regarded as including also some responsibility for determining the policies and programs of governments. Specifically, it is the planning, organizing, directing, coordinating, and controlling of government operations. Public administration is a feature of all nations, whatever their system of government.
Public policies are the guidelines that government entities use to coordinate their various programs and initiatives. Public administrators are responsible for producing and managing those policies. Individuals who know how to root out societal problems and theorize policy-based solutions to those problems best perform this duty. A Master of Public Administration highlights the ways public administrators interact with public policy. The program helps graduate students develop the skills needed to make policy decisions for public organizations, such as governments and nonprofits. Policies are strategies that organizations adopt to guide certain aspects of their operations.
As a young adult with a budding interest in political science and public issues, I was astounded to hear about people whose entire careers were dedicated to studying public management and administration, otherwise known as bureaucracy. How could anyone stand to read, let alone write, book after book and article after article about people languishing in cubicles? Surely, they must need that specific degree for career advancement, I thought. Even during the early phases of my PhD work, I worked hard to avoid courses and content associated with public management and administration. Eventually, this stupendously ignorant aversion to Public Administration withered in the hot sun of reality. The more I learned about government and public affairs, the more I came to understand that many different policy choices can be made to work effectively, but only if they are designed with reality in mind and administered intelligently.
