Certificate of Public Administration


Randy Allen, Director
The department is authorized to grant an Undergraduate Certificate in Public Administration (UCPA).

The undergraduate certificate is an interdisciplinary approach in several related areas that is designed to assist students to be considered for entry-level administrative positions in government. Admission requirements include graduation from an accredited high school with at least a 2.89 GPA or completion of 20 credit hours of college or university work with a GPA of at least 2.5; regular enrollment as an undergraduate student; and a letter of intent from the prospective student.

When admitted, the student meets with the program director to develop a program outline. The program director advises students throughout their programs.


The student must complete the program’s course requirements and the bachelor’s degree.
