The Public Administration program at Kentucky State University prepares students for careers as supervisors, managers, and decision-makers in the public sector—from local and state, to federal government agencies. Graduates of the Public Administration program may be eligible for employment in similar capacities in the non-profit sector. Established in 1973, the program offers an undergraduate and a graduate program, one leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree (BPA) in Public Administration and the other to a Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree, respectively.

The University’s program in Public Administration is designed to give students practical abilities in problem-solving, program analysis, and implementation. The structure of the academic program is based on the premise that a Public Administration student should possess skills adaptable to many tasks and employment settings. The MPA program offers specializations in human resource management, non-profit administration, international development, and management information systems.
