Public Policy

The Public Policy major draws its theoretical foundations from a variety of disciplines including government, economics, and sociology.  Majors are trained both in the ethics of public policy making as well as in the diverse methodologies used in the field. Because public policy is an applied field, majors take a variety of courses in such diverse areas as environmental studies, race and ethnic studies, women's and gender studies, government, economics, and sociology. Students develop a concentration that allows them to develop substantial expertise in an area of public policy analysis.
