PUBM 577 - Comparative Public Administration

3 credit hours
The outcomes and the processes of our own public agenda become clearer when one considers another country’s very different public agenda. This course is a study abroad program that focuses on the host country’s nonprofit and public organizations and the issues they face. Through site visits, attention is directed to issues such as economic development, metropolitan development, management of historical sites and social services. In small teams, students examine the economic base of a community and the public services available in those communities. For a richer comparative experience, participants stay with families. Also, there is a three-hour daily language instruction to enable students to more fully participate in the dialogue. Elective.
