Government & Public Administration

Educational programs in the Government & Public Administration Career Cluster are of interest to individuals who may want to be responsible for developing and implementing laws and policies that shape and protect society. Students learn how to keep people, institutions, systems, technology, and the economy safe from attacks. Such employees can hold positions with the military or civilian agencies.

The DoDEA College and Career Ready Standards (CCRS) for Career and Technical Education are adopted from the Common Career Technical Core. These standards are referenced as CCRS-CTE.
