Government and Public Administration

The Government and Public Administration pathway includes training for potential elected or appointed government officials, or those responsible for making and executing public policy.  This pathway would include training for any number of elected officials from city council to the President of the United States. It would also include the staff members who support those elected officials in carrying out their official duties.  Careers in this pathway often require working with constituents of interests groups with conflicting goals.  Leadership, consensus building and conflict resolution are important skills in this area.  For most jobs in this pathway and additional post-secondary degree is required or recommended.
