Our program is interdisciplinary, empowering students to be engaged in the formation, implementation, and analysis of public policy. The program design ensures that students develop a foundation of knowledge in the public policy process, including a particular understanding of the role of institutions in shaping policy. Students can tailor their major or minor to develop specialties, and they will further engage multiple substantive policy areas of concern while developing a skill set to both understand and produce public policy analysis.
