To complete your degree you took 9 core classes which addressed general public administration areas and at least three additional courses. Your academic journey has changed the way you look at public administration. In the Reflective Essay you are asked to reflect on this experience and how it changed you, your understanding of public administration and your approach to public service. These changes are not simply about gaining academic knowledge, but about changing the way you look at the world and think about it. Please take some time to think about this. While good writing is important, this is not a graded exercise. It is where we as faculty hear what you felt you learned during your time with us.
Please follow this format for your Reflective Essay:
• 2 pages long minimum, and can be longer if you want
• Single spaced with 1” margins
• 12 point scale in Arial font
