Abstract: Scientific and applied problems as for development of field of knowledge and specialty “Public Administration and Management” legally implemented in Ukraine in 2015-2016 are observed in the article with using historic, logical and system approaches. It is found out that emergence of this field of knowledge is determined by active European integration policy of Ukraine’s leadership, transformation of state administration system into the system of public administration based on the European principles of public administration and democratic governance. Some thoughts about object and subject sphere, interdisciplinary nature and specifics of the field of knowledge “Public Administration and Management”, its links to other educational and scientific fields are substantiated. At the same time, the attention is focused on lack of a serious scientific-primarily theoretical and methodological-basis of the relevant specialty which is currently preparing specialists in the system of higher education, as the main conceptual and categorical apparatus that should promote the disclosure of content of education by this specialty is not yet established in science and education, as it is based on ideological cliches. The author defines and summarizes in several groups the main problems that accompany the process of development of field of knowledge and specialty “Public Administration and Management” in Ukraine in 2016-2018: theoretical and methodological problems, personnel problems, institutional problems, financial and economic problems, problems of ensuring the quality of education, problems related to employment of graduates are also being prognosed. It is proved the research position on expediency of filling the educational process with specialists training in the field “Public Administration and Management” with the state-administrated content that is rapidly eroded and leveled out in the relevant curricula and educational programs of higher education institutions licensed for the training of these specialists. It is stated that, while studying state as a complex social system, its authorities, mechanisms, etc., the achievements and possibilities of the field of science “State Administration” have been gradually depreciating and being unclaimed. It is grounded the proposal on the necessity for restoration of field of knowledge “State Administration” in Ukraine with a number of specialties of state-administrated orientation, with possibility of training by these specialties the applicants for higher education at its second (master’s) levels.
