Public Service Leadership

Program Overview/Mission

"The largest employer in the United States is the government," says Lecturer in Public Service Leadership Vicki de la Guardia. "What better career preparation than a generalist degree that will prepare students for a professional career in leadership and management in the public sector? UHCL's public service leadership degree provides students with a sound theoretical framework and an interdisciplinary orientation within a positive learning environment."

The majority of the classes in the program are available online and graduates of the program will be prepared for careers in politics, government, law and the civil service arena. Specifically, Ms. de la Guardia believes that graduates will fill such positions as teachers, administrators and directors in public service, fire fighters, emergency management professionals, budget analysts and urban planners as well as serve in multiple positions at the city, state, federal and global level.
