The School of Public Service is grounded in the mission of Elizabethtown College - educate for service. We believe that education is most noble when used to benefit others. Our programs empower students to use their knowledge, expertise, and communication skills to solve pressing problems in their communities and around the globe.  

Graduates for our program are leaders who pursue meaningful careers within all levels of government, non-profit agencies, the legal community, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), media organizations, and other places where they can make a difference. They shape public policy, lead community organizations, inform public discourse, build positive community relations, and design programs and initiatives to serve the public interest.


The School of Public Service includes programs in Criminal Justice, Journalism, Legal Studies, Mass Communications, Media Analytics and Social Media, Political Science, Public Health, Public Relations, and Sociology.
