This session will cover the requirements, application process and careers in public policy for both the major and the minor in public policy, as well as provide you firsthand testimonials from current students and members of our student organizations.

What is Policy:

Policy is just a fancy word for “rules.” From administrative policies to ordinances and laws, we train you to identify, analyze and address the policies that impact not only you and your family but your community, state and beyond. 

Highlights of our core program:

 

  • The Education Advisory Board (EAB) ranked Public Policy as the 15th most valuable major out of 162 degrees. 

 

  • Our Bachelor’s degree offers concentrations in Economic Development Policy, Health Policy, Social Welfare Policy, Environmental Policy, Education Policy, and Global Policy
  • Values-driven public service training means that we encourage all our students to have a vision about what a high-functioning democracy should look like
  • Analytically grounded training gives you concrete skills to take directly into the workforce, and soft-skills and leadership development to help our students work in highly collaborative environments
  • Experiential learning opportunities in-class and through field placements at some of the top government agencies and non-profits in the city, state or nationally
  • Real opportunities and real careers to help transform our democracy!
