During the Master's programme in Public Administration at Radboud University, you study the functioning and structure of organisations in and around public administration. The Master's programme prepares you to become a public manager: someone who uses their wide scope of knowledge regarding the functioning and organisation of the government to provide solutions regarding both internal organisational problems and governmental social policy issues. Within the Master's Public Administration, you have a choice between four Master's specialisations.
When your education background does not grant you direct admission to the Master's programme in Public Administration, you can, in some cases, enrol in a pre-Master's programme. A pre-Master’s programme is (usually) a one-year programme (60 EC’s) especially designed to bridge the gap between your prior education and our Master’s in Public Administration. Finishing one of these programmes grants direct access to the Master’s programme.
