Academic Programmes

Postgraduate Diploma in Public Administration

Philosophy of the Programme

The Department of Political and Administrative Studies acknowledges a fact that Social scientists generally and public servants or administrators specifically, regardless of their level of expertise, ought to possess generic competence as a result of their training. It is in this spirit therefore that this Department is duty-bound to provide the learners with the basic as well as advanced theoretical and practical knowledge of their respective specialization.

The Department of Political and Administrative Studies is willfully aware that to be able to serve and indeed survive effectively in the rapidly changing competitive environment, the academic programmes offered must be tailored and developed with the clear aim of meeting high academic and professional standards of the qualifications and products of the University.

The Department of Political and Administrative Studies, must thus live up to this challenge by offering well articulated courses that will provoke the graduates to explore the heights in search of solutions to the enormous challenges facing public sector in our countries as they struggle to develop.
