The establishment of public administration as a professional field is a twentieth-century development. Public administration today has its own knowledge base, schools of public administration and public policy to train practitioners, and professional associations - all hallmarks of professional status. Civil servants are trained in universities, and appropriate expert credentials are prerequisites for careers in public bureaucracies. Methods of program evaluation, cost-benefit analysis, and the integration of legal and economic analyses are now part of the core training of public administrators.
