PUBS 1101 - Foundations of Public Service


This course provides an introduction to the history, cultural contexts, and contemporary definitions of public service. Careful attention is given to the myriad ways public service is provided in public, non-profit, volunteer, philanthropic, and other settings. A special focus of the course is a consideration of how the notion of “the common good” has developed over time and how it forms the basis of many modern understandings of what it means to be a public servant. This course will include a combination of theory, case studies, and practice, and is offered as a Service Learning course. 3 credits
