Program Description:

The Master of Public Administration in Leiden aims to educate students to become academically trained public administration experts in a broad sense. This means that the programme is not limited to teaching the knowledge and skills necessary for a public service career. The programme is rooted in social science research, which requires an attitude of scholarly independence and the ability to apply insights from the different disciplines within Public Administration to problems of policy making and public sector management. Furthermore, the programme emphasises the ability to reflect on the ethical and normative dimensions of government and their consequences for the behaviour of government officials and civil servants.
