School of Public Service

“The noblest motive is the public good.” — Virgil

It takes a certain kind of person to dedicate their life to public service. It takes hard work and dedication, good moral character, and a strong sense of self. National University’s School of Public Service supports students with our Whole Human™ approach to education. That means financial, social and emotional, career, family, and academic help throughout your journey here at NU.

The School of Public Service offers several criminal justice and public service programs at all levels that prepare students with the skills to succeed in the ever-changing landscape of public service. These programs will provide the know-how to serve you well in the fields of law and business, public administration, criminal justice, forensic sciences, homeland security, and emergency management. If dedicating yourself to a career in public service is your calling, National University is here to help.
