List of Public Administration Dissertation Topics

List of Public Administration Dissertation Topics

Being a grad student is hard on its own. There is so much pressure and responsibilities that just fall on your shoulders. However, as all of your hard work was not enough to graduate, you also must complete one final paper. Now, a dissertation is no ordinary paper. First, it should demonstrate all the skills and knowledge that a grad student accommodated during their years of studies. Next, it should be informative and valuable for academia. Hence, a student should come up with a unique and original idea.

Choosing between great public administration dissertation topics is not an easy task. Though, it’s possible. All you need is a good approach and determination. Also, if you ever hit the dead end, you can always look for some tips and suggestions online. This guide is one of such online helpers. Let’s see what it has to offer. 

What Is Public Administration?

So, public administration is responsible for all the governing systems of a state. It is the area that helps to organize and coordinate government operations. This discipline is essential for the healthy functioning of states and cities. It brings order and control to the system. However, this area also has numerous responsibilities which are hard to remember at first. This is because it operates on multiple levels and covers so many various structures and fields. Overall, this area of study can give you limitless ideas to write about. 

How to Choose Topics in Public Administration

Choosing ideas for paper writing is never an easy task. It requires a lot of time, effort, and erudition. Hence, first of all, each graduate student should be well aware of current public administration issues. Students should show their deep knowledge of the issues they are describing. So, when choosing, you can first pick the area of study you feel most comfortable at; for example, it can be immigration, healthcare, drug control, or else. 

Next, think of the issues that you are most interested to talk about or that seem to be most relevant at the moment. Can you bring something new to the discussion? Will your work change the perception of those issues? Can it be the ground for further research and exploration? Your goal here is to create a meaningful and useful piece of work that other scholars can further use in their writing. It’s not only about grades anymore but about being of use to your fellow colleagues. 

Yet, your idea can even come from your previous essays. For instance, you can easily look for public administration research paper topics and use them for your graduation work. The only difference between them is that the latter should have a more narrow and nuanced take on things. 

Dissertation Topics in the U.S. Public Administration

As you are approaching this life-changing decision (yes, we mean choosing a dissertation topic ), you deserve to have some help along the way. All your hard work and hours of studying have ultimately led to this one final academic paper. It has to be perfect. 

Here are some ideas on public administration thesis topics. Hopefully, they will inspire you to write and create. Good luck!

Tips on Choosing a Topic

Choose a topic.

Choosing a topic does not seem like it should be difficult. Unfortunately, it often is.

Frustrated stick figure flips desk. Captions says Example A: Choosing a topic.

Choosing a right topic can often make the entire process much easier. This can be done if you follow these steps.

1. Pick a topic that interests you.

The topics we can choose are often dictated by assignments, classes, professors, etc. But, find a topic you like will make the process more rewarding.

If you have an open-ended assignment, browsing the databases listed below can help you decide on a topic by giving you a jumping off point. They also have the added benefit of suggesting many different resources once your topic is found:

  • CQ Researcher This database publishes reports that provide overviewed, background information, opinion pieces, and lots of references for a large collection of topics. A really great place to start, if you aren’t certain what’s out there.
  • Opposing Viewpoints in Context Much like CQ Researcher, this database provides overviews, media, background information, and lots of references on specific topics that are known to be in the public eye. A great place to browse for topics, or to find out more about one you’re considering.
  • Google News or Yahoo News – specific topics Google or Yahoo news can show you topics that are currently being discussed. It can be a good place to start.

2. Find information on your topic.

You may find a topic like "Obesity" or "Fracking" interesting enough to write about, but not know very much beyond what you've noticed in the news.

Stick figure looks as though he or she is in thought. Caption says Just what is fracking, anyway.

That's okay! Even for subjects that you feel that you know a lot about, it's hugely beneficial to get background information. That's where encyclopedias and other reference materials come in. You can use them to discover definitions, general trends, subtopics, and other items of interest about the subject you are interested in. Once this information is gathered, you can use it conduct more effective research.

Stick figure looks amazed. Wikipedia? Caption says But I can't use that (even though I secretly do).

Didn't think you'd see this here, did you?

Wikipedia is a really good example of a reference source: a place you go when you want to see what something is. Just like many other encyclopedias, it can give you a basic overview, related topics, and even a brief history of your subject. However, because pages can be edited by anyone (your mom, your little brother, your nosy neighbor down the street), there’s a risk that someone has messed around with the information and it’s completely wrong . On top of that, you can’t cite it. So feel free to use it, but make sure you use it wisely.

  • Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVR) Imagine this as Wikipedia’s older, more reliable sibling, the one you can count on to not exaggerate or just plain lie. It works the same way, but people who have definitely done their research are the ones writing the entries. What’s more, unlike Wikipedia, most instructors will allow materials from GVR to be cited in your assignment. Information isn’t worth very much if you can’t use it!
  • Oxford Reference Online , and Sage Reference Online Just like the GVR, but from different publishers.

Now that you’ve done your background research, your topic should be shaping itself more clearly to you. It can help at this point to create a concept or mind map that demonstrates the interconnected aspects of the topic and how they relate to each other.

It’s now that you need to take the aspects of the topic that are of most interest to you, and form them into a question that your research assignment will answer. This question will guide your research forward, helping you to stay focused and relevant.

3. Create a research question.

When the time comes to do the bulk of your research, three different things can happen with your results.

First image- stick figure is angry and the caption says Too much. Second image - stick figure is angrier and the caption says Not enough. Third image - stick figure is extremely angry and the caption says Irrelevant. Fourth image - Stick figure is happy and caption says Just right.

It’s not pleasant to be on the verge of writing a paper or script, only to find that your topic is too new, obscure, narrow, or broad to find enough supporting research to complete. So it’s important to try it out, and to change your topic, if you find yourself with too many, too few, or irrelevant results.

Some good general tools to try a preliminary search in are:

  • LIONSearch This tool is a single interface to the combined resources provided by the Penn State University Libraries. What that means is that LIONSearch covers almost everything that the library has access to, both print and digital collections. The Google of the library, if you will.
  • Academic Search Complete Comprehensive scholarly, multi-disciplinary full-text database, with more than 5,300 full-text periodicals - in other words, lots of great stuff!
  • The CAT This is the library’s traditional catalog, but it doesn’t only search books. Ebooks, videos, journals, and many other types of media can be found here as well

While you’re searching, if you find a few articles or books that you really like, use the GET IT! button

GET IT button

Example questions might be:

  • How has the obesity epidemic affected Native communities in the United States?
  • How has the economy of North Dakota been affected by fracking?

As you can see, these questions take specific aspects of the broader topics of “obesity” and “fracking,” and narrows them both into focused queries that a thesis statement then begin to answer.

5. Broaden or narrow your topic as needed.

If during your test search, you found too many or too few results, you may need to either narrow, or broaden your topic to make it more manageable.

  • To narrow your topic, consider making it more specific. Focus on one aspect of your topic. This can include geographical area, culture, time frame, discipline, and population group (age, gender, ethnic group, profession, etc).
  • To broaden your topic, consider backing away from your more specific descriptors. Topics that are very narrow are often locally confined, recent, or focusing on very specific aspects of a larger whole (eg. Lady Gaga vs. Pop Music). 

If you're having any difficulty with this step, or any other, feel free to Ask a Librarian .

Biden will keep Trump's China tariffs, and add new ones on electric vehicles

President Biden makes his way to Air Force One after posing with highway patrol troopers in Mountain View, Calif., on May 10.

The Biden administration is getting ready to announce new tariffs on imports of goods from China — products like electric vehicles deemed to be policy priorities.

The announcement, which could come as early as next week, was confirmed by a source familiar with the tariff deliberations, who spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of the formal announcement of the decision.

Biden kept Trump's tariffs on Chinese imports. This is who pays the price

Biden kept Trump's tariffs on Chinese imports. This is who pays the price

The administration has been reviewing tariffs on Chinese goods since President Biden took office — steep duties on about $370 billion of imports from China each year, put in place by former President Donald Trump as one of his signature policy moves.

The Biden administration has decided to keep those Trump tariffs in place — and in addition, add a range of strategic items to the list. The decision was first reported by Bloomberg.

Tariffs are a piece of Biden's industrial policy

The new items that will be subject to tariffs align with Biden's policy priorities on climate, technology and manufacturing, the source said. These areas are covered by Biden's Inflation Reduction Act and the CHIPS and Science Act, which made hundreds of billions of dollars available to boost the domestic clean energy and semiconductor sectors.

Biden tells Pittsburgh steelworkers he wants to hike tariffs on Chinese steel

Biden has been campaigning hard on jobs created by the big legislative packages. He has insisted that projects will use American-made goods and labor.

"When folks see shovels in the ground on all these projects, when they see new pipes being laid and people going to work, I hope they feel the pride that I feel — pride in their hometowns making a comeback," he said last week in Wilmington, N.C.

It's a message aimed at resonating in swing states that lost massive numbers of jobs when manufacturing moved offshore — states like Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Biden bets big on bringing factories back to America, building on some Trump ideas

Biden bets big on bringing factories back to America, building on some Trump ideas

Last month, Biden announced in a speech to United Steelworkers union members in Pittsburgh that he wants to hike tariffs on imports of Chinese steel and aluminum, noting that more than 14,000 steelworkers in Pennsylvania and Ohio had lost their jobs between 2000 and 2010.

"I promise you that I'm not going to let that happen again," he said.

Trump has also said he would broaden tariffs on imported goods, including targeting Chinese cars .

Biden in Pittsburgh sought to contrast his approach as "strategic and targeted" and has said Trump's broader approach would raise costs for U.S. consumers.
