Education & Public Service

Student talking to a higher education administrator in government office

Education & Public Service is for exploratory students who identify an interest in serving others. This can be seen by having a strong interest to be an advocate for others, a desire to teaching, facilitating, or training individuals of any age, that you would like to evaluate and assess individual or community needs, have interest in law and public policy, and/or seek to help individuals thrive in their environments.

These guides provide an example of how you can plan your first few semesters at KU. It includes exploratory and introductory courses to consider based on your interests and lists some common general education requirements for your area of interest. Remember, this guide is just a sample! Your individual plan will change depending on things such as math, English, and language placement, transfer credit, credit by exam, and other factors. If you are unsure about any placement, chat with an academic advisor!
