Washington D.C. Washington DC is a special place when it comes to public administration. It is the center of the federal government but as important, it is the center of discussion around many public policy and administration issues. Every successful public administrator needs to have an understanding of how things in Washington DC work, how they can work effectively on national issues and deal with the federal government. This class will provide students with several unique experiences that can only be had in Washington DC. These experiences include talking with national leaders to discuss cutting-edge issues facing public administration, talking with persons who implement federal programs to understand the complexities of programs from the national level and understanding the federal policy-setting process by taking with actors in that process. In addition, this class will take advantage of a unique opportunity to talk about ethical issues facing public administrators that can only be had in Washington DC.
