Public Administrators play a key role in our various levels of government and day to day lives. For example, local administrators run agencies that provide fire and police protection, run utilities and public transportation, administer hospitals and health clinics, manage our garbage collection and disposal, provide parks and recreational facilities and supervise the elections of our public officials.
With this in mind, please introduce yourself and let us know why you are interested in this course and potentially working as a public administrator.
Public Administration Case Study Analysis
Each student is required to complete a case study analysis. There are four case studies in the book to choose from. It is your responsibility to look at the syllabus and choose a case study to analyze.
A case study analysis is a critical analysis of the major issues of concern in the case. A summary or description of the case is not sufficient for this assignment.
The case study analysis should be 2-4 pages long, 12 font, double-spaced and include the following SECTIONS:
Identify and describe the problem or issue that is the subject of the case.
Identify and evaluate 2-3 relevant potential courses of action. Describe each and state their strengths and weaknesses.
Choose the alternative that you believe is most appropriate and justify your selection.
Use the discussion and questions provided at the end of the case to help guide your analysis. While you are not answering these questions directly, they can provide guidance for the write-up.
Write a concluding paragraph.
