The John S. Watson School of Public Service and Continuing Studies offers areas of study under the Master of Science in Management (MSM) focusing on issues of management and public service. Public service areas of study for the MSM include:

Each area of study features an applied orientation toward building capacity and leadership within the public service professions. Students will engage in rigorous and relevant experiences that integrate policy and management across disciplines. Graduates develop and hone the skills necessary to transform students’ personal commitment into public leadership, enabling them to acquire a deep understanding of today’s public service environment and develop the skills necessary to work as leaders in public service professions.

Public Service programs offered under the MSM provide an evidence-based, inquiry-based approach to problem solving that enable students to address and identify solutions to real-world challenges and work with leaders in their respective fields.
