The Mark O. Hatfield School of Government is home to Portland State University’s Criminology & Criminal Justice, Political Science, and Public Administration departments.

Although each program is distinct, their location under one roof affords students the unique opportunity for collaborative multi-disciplinary study. We encourage you to explore the program options of each department and their vast opportunities in undergraduate, graduate, certificate, and continuing education programs. These programs are shaped by three overarching values: the importance of public service, the pursuit of social justice, and the quest for effective innovation in service delivery.
