MINOR IN PUBLIC POLICY
The purpose of the Minor in Public Policy is to introduce students to the field of public policy analysis and prepare them from a wide variety of majors for careers that require public policy knowledge and skills. The field of public policy analysis identifies and evaluates solutions to public problems and prepares students to be future government executives and administrators, high-level personnel in the non-profit organizations and a rapidly expanding set of other careers in a global community. The minor complements preparation in such fields as political science, public administration, criminal justice, economics, law, business, and other social sciences. Students who plan to do graduate work in these fields would also benefit from the Public Policy minor.
