John P. Burke School of Public Service and Education

Between practice and theory, you’ll find real solutions.


Yesterday’s methods won’t solve today’s most complex problems. This idea is one of our guiding principles at the John P. Burke School of Public Service and Education. To us, innovation and creative thinking are just as important as policy and practice. You’ll learn how to serve in order to lead, and you’ll take your desire to help others into rewarding, impactful careers.

As an undergraduate, you’ll focus on the applied learning that helps set you apart in today’s competitive public service marketplace. In our Master of Public Administration and Master of Human Service programs, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge and tools to make a substantial difference in some of society’s deepest and most challenging problems.

At Post, public service isn’t just about being a do-gooder and offering a helping hand. It’s about substantiating moral and ethical purposes, and finding an effective balance between academic theory and practical application. In all of our programs, our goal is to prepare you for important work that will help you change lives and transform communities.
