On the Public Administration and Management BA at DMU you have the opportunity to combine the study of applied politics with the management of modern society. You will share the first year with the Politics BA course, giving you a vital grounding in political issues and theory. In the second and third years you will have the opportunity to combine politics with public administration modules. There is opportunity for a short placement with a local authority so you can put theory into practice.
