Green Bay, Wis. — The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Public Administration program announces its Public Administration Major and Nonprofit Management Certificate are now achievable online as well as in-person. This endeavor will make the program more widely available for employed adults while allowing a new generation of college students to pursue their UW-Green Bay education online.
Associate Professor Lora Warner calls this new online expansion “advantageous,” stating students can take control of how they wish to complete their education with greater access to our strong undergraduate program. The online options for the Public Administration Major and Nonprofit Management Certificate are the same as obtaining the major or certificate in person on UW-Green Bay’s campus. Students also are welcome to take a blend of in-person and online courses in ways that best fit their schedules. Warner noted that online students, like those who physically attend classes, will engage in high-impact, hands-on curricula taught by exceptional faculty.
Individuals can obtain Certificates in Emergency Management or in Nonprofit Management (with 15-18 credit hours) by completing designated courses offered by the Public Administration major. These certificates may also be pursued online by non-degree-seeking students such as employed professionals who seek to advance their careers.
Recent UW-Green Bay Public Administration graduates have obtained careers as city administrators, fund-raising professionals, parks directors, budget analysts, program managers, human resources assistants, environmental planners, volunteer coordinators, emergency management directors, and claims analysts, among others. Many graduates pursue graduate degrees in public administration, public policy or political science.
