PhD Public Administration at Carleton Sucks

Subject: PhD Public Administration at Carleton Sucks
I would strongly recommend against anyone enrolling in the PhD - Public Administration program at Carleton. The curriculum is extremely disorganized - with students being given far more work than they can handle - and the professors can´t even agree on what "public administration" is.

The faculty are generally rude, condescending and difficult to deal with -- especially Donald Swartz, Phil Ryan, and Jennifer Stewart.

I´m surprised the university hasn´t stepped in and done something about this shoddy program -- none of the students are happy there.

Donald Swartz is a horrible professor! (in reply to: PhD Public Administration at Carleton Sucks)
Donald Swartz... that man is impossible to deal with -- rigid and knows nothing about the real world. If it wasn´t for tenure he´d be fired.

Jennifer Stewart a Horrible Professor!!! (in reply to: PhD Public Administration at Carleton Sucks)
Public Administration is not even an academic discipline, it´s about training civil servants, I haven´t a clue why they would have a PhD program.

I did my MPA at Carleton and had Jennifer Stewart as a professor -- let me just say she´s a socially dysfunctional b#$tch (and I normally hate using that word but it 100% applies to her).

Lisa Mills is another professor I don´t like, very two-faced -- pleasant on the surface but ready to stab you in the back with a poor grade with no explanation!

I agree (in reply to: PhD Public Administration at Carleton Sucks)
That program ruined my life -- the work load was impossible, the curriculum poorly organized, and I had to put up with some real a#$hole professors like Phil Ryan who treated me condescendingly and was extremely rude.

I wish that PhD program would be disaccredited!

Hey disillusioned,

I was only a MPA student but I heard alot of bad things about the PhD program, and I had a couple of those profs and they were terrible.
