Public Administration is the general field of study for understanding what governments at different levels and their partners and contractors do, how public policies and programs are determined, designed, and implemented, how public funding is generated and public resources allocated among competing priorities. Public administration encompasses how governments and their partners at different levels plan, organize, provide, produce, distribute and assess the roles and responsibilities and the alignment of public services in their efforts to improve societal well-being.
The resulting programs and functions must also keep pace with unprecedented rapid change in an environment now driven by the dynamic forces of globalization, technology, marketization, and eco-sustainability. As a discipline, public administration integrates bodies of knowledge across many fields—intergovernmental relations, organizational theory, political economy, public policy analysis, public management, and constitutional and administrative law—that transcend the conventional and highly functional public administration subfields in public finance, budgeting, human resources, contracting, and program management and evaluation.
Public Administration seeks to enhance governance at all levels—both in international terms, to promote understanding of public policy and management in different states and economies around the globe, and in multi-jurisdictional terms, to promote trust and effective relationships among different stakeholders and partners across the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
Finally, public administration is deeply concerned with ensuring that its practitioners (and researchers) understand and exemplify the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct and lead the movement for organizational social responsibility and sustainable development to protect our environment.
student’s ability to critically engage with intersections between state,
governance and development
· To develop student’s familiarity with problems of governance, development and his/her ability to exploit this knowledge and analyse our administrative systems
· To develop the foundations of core public administration concepts and theories, and the foster the ability to critically appraise and apply them to our context.
Method & Assessment
- Presentation/Assignments/Quiz/Class participation will contribute to 30% marks.
- Project (written & oral) will be 20%.
- Examination will be 50%.
Assessment is based on individual presentation of assigned readings, participation in group discussions, written examination and a project submission.
To achieve strategic goals and objectives, organizations need to understand what employee behaviors and skills are needed from them to attain their strategic aims. Strategic Human Resource Management course helps participants learn how organizations put in place or align their HR policies and practices with their strategic goals and to achieve the desired organizational performance through their people, the real asset for an organization.
This course is taught in an interactive format. To encourage self-learning and participation from students during classes, students are assigned readings for every session to present and discuss their ideas and thoughts through discussion/dialogue. The methods employed for learning by doing are class participation and discussions, case studies, group activities and interaction with practitioners who have first-hand knowledge to illustrate real time strategic HR issues faced by organizations today.

Democracy has three
major organs that include legislature, judiciary and the executive. This course
is about the executive branch of a democratic government. We will study it in
the context of current practices in western countries particularly. We will
understand how the executive branch in Pakistan manages the Public affairs in
our local context, through an applied approach to learning. Newspaper reading
and following talk shows on national channels would be of particular

Teaching Philosophy: In this course I aim at to develop critical and creative thinking skills in students that will facilitate them to learn.
Learning Objectives: The students will be able to understand;
1. Introduction to origin of life
2. What is cell
3. Significance of cell to life
4. Uniqueness of cell
5. Types of cell
6. Components of cells (Organelles especially nucleus)
7. Cellular Machinery
8. Relating cells to DNA
9. What is DNA
10. DNA and Diversity within cell
11. DNA and diversity of life
12. Genes and Genomes
13. Mutations and Diversity
14. Structure and function of DNA and how genome evolve.
Learning Outcomes: The students learned;
1. How life evolved on the planet
2. Cell is a single independently replicating and evolving entity
3. Cell is the building block of life (if cell then life, no cell no life)
4. Parts of cell, its property of independent replication
5. Two types of cells i.e. eukaryotes and prokaryotes
6. Cellular organelles (ribosomes, mitochondria etc.)
7. Nucleus the central component necessary for replication
8. Transcription, translation and replication
9. Cell has nucleus that has DNA and this molecule of DNA has all the information
10. DNA is the hereditary material, that makes genes
11. This DNA contributes to the diversity by changing DNA sequences within a cell
12. The same DNA molecule contributes to diversity of life
13. Random changes in DNA sequence generate changes that generate mutations that are responsible for variety of life
Cells and Genomes: The Universal Features of Cells on Earth; The Diversity of Genomes and the Tree of Life Genetic Information in Eucaryotes.DNA and Chromosomes: The structure and function of DNA; Chromosomal DNA and its packaging in the chromatin fiber; the regulation of chromatin structure; the global structure of a chromosome; how genome evolve.
