Public Administration Schools in California

How does a degree from one of the public administration schools in California differ from a traditional business administration degree? Admittedly, many of the required courses are the same, such as organizational management, human resources management, leadership, and research methods. However in the majority of public administration jobs, the focus is on providing a service, not making a profit. Therefore, classes like social justice, public economy, policy analysis, and public sector finance are part of the curriculum. Graduates from public administration schools often pursue jobs in government at local, state or federal levels, or in healthcare, criminal justice, and public safety and security – which are also some of the specializations available with this degree.
