PADM 721 - Project Demonstrating Excellence (3 Credits)

Prerequisite: None
The Project Demonstrating Excellence is an independent research project, requiring a student to integrate and synthesize the knowledge and skills acquired in previous courses in the Advanced Public Administration sequence. It is designed to demonstrate a student’s mastery of theoretical and critical scholarship in the field, as well as provide him or her with an opportunity to exercise originality and creativity. The student will produce a report that adds to the existing body of knowledge in the field of Public Administration and that has, at the same time, applications in the real-world practice of public administration. In this sense, the course offers the student a bridge from the role of practitioner to the role of scholar-practitioner. Ultimately, the project offers students a model for more critical and effective social engagement.
