Post University John P. Burke School of Public Service


You can’t expect to solve society’s most complex problems by approaching them the same way you always have. That’s why, at the John P. Burke School of Public Service, we value creativity and innovation just as much as policy and practice. Here we teach you to serve in order to lead, and help turn a desire to help others into rewarding, impactful careers in the public sector, community and government organizations.

At the undergraduate level, we focus on the applied learning that helps set you apart in the highly competitive public service market. In our Master of Public Service and Master of Human Services programs, the goal is to tackle some of society’s deepest and most challenging problems by giving you the advanced knowledge and tools to make a tangible difference.

Here, public service isn’t just giving a helping hand. It’s finding the most effective balance between academic theory and practical application—all while maintaining a sense of moral purpose. It’s changing lives in order to change communities.

We look forward to learning more about you and to sharing more information on our programs. To speak to an Admissions Counselor, call 800.345.2562.
