The Bachelor of Public Administration is unique in South Australia and was developed after consultation with senior public sector leaders.
The course will teach you how government works, and how to work with it. It will give you an advanced understanding of the values and processes of governance, the policy, regulatory and service-delivery roles of the public sector, policy analysis and the effective management of organisations, programs, resources and people.
The program is comprehensive but flexible. You will complete major sequences in both Management and Public Policy and acquire both specialist knowledge in policy areas that interest you - which might include the environment, economics, Indigenous affairs, welfare, education or foreign affairs - and generic workplace skills.
A TAFE/VET entry has been designed for people who have graduated with a TAFE/VET Diploma or Advanced Diploma in Management, Business, Government or related areas. Applicants who have completed such an award will receive credit amounting to half of the course requirements for the Bachelor of Public Administration - 1.5 years of credit.
This course equips graduates for a wide variety of roles in public administration and to work at the expanding interface between government, business and non-profit sectors.
