The primary target of this certificate is people who are either currently working in a governmental office (whether political or not), or who are seeking employment with the government and have not yet completed a college degree. Government employees face very different rules, constraints, and work situations than do private sector employees. This certificate will help provide public sector employees with the skills needed to face these challenges.

Student Learning Goals

The certificate is meant to help students develop skills that would be useful for working in government offices or non-profit agencies. These skills include written and oral communication skills, as well as skills in budgeting and managing personnel in a political environment, the making of public policy, and the legal environment in which government agencies operate.

University Residency Requirement

Students must complete 50% of the required credit hours for a certificate in residence at IU Southeast. Some departments may have additional Residency requirements.

Public Sector Management Residency Requirement

No additional residency requirement for the Public Sector Management Certificate.

Public Sector Management Certificate Requirements

The certificate requires 15 hours, with a minimum cumulative G.P.A. of 2.0 to be awarded a certificate.
