B.A Public Administration

public administration bsc

Course Overview

Public administration is the backbone of modern statehood. No public policy can conceivably be implemented without it. The nature and the performance of public administration are thus key to both the understanding and the improvement of any government activity. The present course introduces to the basic properties and roles of public administration. This is done through both a systematic overview and readings of classic contributions to the field. The chosen approach takes into account that, on the one hand, public administration is an indispensable tool of government regardless of the nature of the political system but that, on the other hand, some of its key-functions do require robust state structures and standards of transparency that are inseparably connected to constitutional democracy and the rule of law. Reliability, efficiency, professionalism or law-based routines can only flourish in a corruption-free and non-arbitrary political environment, let alone impartiality, responsiveness, responsibility, neutral auditing and independent court control. Both those normative standards and how to manage administrative bodies in an imperfect environment are topics to be addressed. Subjects include public administration as a tool of government and a political integrator, autonomy and responsiveness, accountability and responsibility, public ethics, public administration as an arena and as organized anarchy or as a learning and unlearning organization, variants of external and internal politicization as well as types of bureaucrats and bureaucratization and the problem of organizational complexity.

Course Objectives

  • Offer a definition of public administration.

CURRICULUM

Section 1: ADVANCED ENGLISH COMPOSITION I (ENG 223)
INTRODUCTION

One of the best ways to take possession of knowledge is to write about what you have heard. At times you listen to a lecture and you think you already know what the writer is saying but by the time you attempt to write it out using your own words that is when you will discover that you do not know as much as you think you do. You might have been thinking that you know how to argue well only to discover when you start writing that you do not know how to put your points together. That is why it is important to practice writing different kinds of essays so that you can be proficient in almost all kinds of writing. Composition writing is also designed to test a candidate’s ability to use English as an effective means of communication in specific situations. These types of compositions are designed to make you express yourself with clarity and coherence in a manner appropriate to the audience, purpose, topic and situation. You may come across situations in life when you may have to argue, describe, narrate an incidence or do some other things that require some skills verbally, non-verbally or in writing. When such situations occur, you are expected to be able to demonstrate your knowledge and skill by presenting what is logical, acceptable, convincing and understandable to the audience, reader or listener. Below are some of the objectives of this unit.

Section 2: BUSINESS COMMUNICATION (FMS 207)
INTRODUCTION

Communication is a process of transferring information from one entity to another. Communication processes are sign-mediated interactions between at least two agents which share a repertoire of signs and semiotic rules. Communication is commonly defined as “the imparting or interchange of thoughts, opinions, or information by speech, writing, or signs”. Communication can be perceived as a two-way process in which there is an exchange and progression of thoughts, feelings or ideas towards a mutually accepted goal or direction.

STUDY SKILLS
30M Lecture
INTORDUCTION

Study skills and study strategies are abilities and approaches applied to learning. They are generally critical to success in school, are considered essential for acquiring good grades, and they are useful for learning throughout one’s life, in support of career and personal interests. They include removing distractions, time management and note taking.

Educational institutions often offer student counseling, or provide resources for improving study skills. There are a vast number of resources marketed as study skills. The learning methods offered for sale range from how to manage time, to note taking, to smart drugs and nutrients for improving performance during study

Despite considerable research on subjects dealt with in study manuals, many lack evidence to support their ideas. Some are paternalistic, offering philosophy and advice about personal problems and, as with study skills, advice may be based on the author‘s own beliefs. For example, an author may offer suggestions for students on dealing with stress without referring to any expert on the subject. Before going into detail on this to unit, let us get the objectives of the unit.

Section 4: FOREIGN POLICY ANALYSISS (INR 321)
The actions of a state in the international arena results from individual choices – by its citizenry, its political leaders, its diplomats and bureaucrats – aggregated through the states internal structures. This unit examines this from inside out in determining the nature of foreign policy. Many of the goals, political, social, economic, and numerous others, which states try to pursue in the international system cannot be achieved within the territorial confines of the national state. As a result, states need the active cooperation, even assistance of other states in the system to achieve their national objectives. This makes it necessary for the state to be in communication with its external environment. It is the totality of this interaction (communication) that is commonly referred to as foreign policy. However, like many other concepts in international relations, the definition of the term “foreign policy” has been a subject of controversy. Sometimes, this controversy arises from different theoretical frameworks from which the subject is approached. It may relate to the whole importance attached to the state, in ordering or controlling international activities in the contemporary world (Ojo & Sasey: 2002).

INTRODUCTION

All perspectives on the subject of international relations contain statements about foreign policy. Historically, this has been the case because virtually all approaches to the study of international relations took the state to be the central actor. Thus, approaches as diverse as those concentrating on political economy, international society and Marxism, have all included a notion of what the state is and how its foreign policy results, regardless of the way in which policy might be defined. Approaches to the study of foreign policy are therefore intrinsic to approaches to the study of international relations, even to those who deny the centrality of the state as an actor in the international society. However, in this unit we center our study on the major approaches to the study of foreign policy. There are two broad approaches to the study of foreign policy: the traditional and the scientific or behavioural approach.

INTRODUCTION

When we speak generally about foreign policy and the decision-making processes that produce it, we mean the goals that official leading states (and all other transnational actors) seek abroad, the values that underlie those goals, and the means or instruments to pursue them. According to the Realist School of Thought, the primary goal of foreign policy is to ensure state survival. From this view point, strategic calculations about national security are the determinants of policy-makers’ choices. Domestic politics and the process of policy making itself are of secondary concern. Based on this, the unitary actor and rational decision-making assumes that, foreign policy making consists primarily of adjusting the state to the pressure of the global system and in the process; the essential properties (actions) remain the same among the individual state.
