These tasks and many more are part of public service, a field that focuses on building healthy societies. Public service includes many different types of careers, but they all have in common the goal of working for others. This course will explore some of the most common career paths in public service. Working for the public also comes with a very specific set of expectations since protecting society is such an important mission. So if you want to work for the greater good, there is probably a public service career for you!
