The minor in public policy is available beginning in the spring 2022 semester.
The minor in public policy is offered for undergraduate students who seek to understand how and why public policies are adopted; how they impact the economy, society, and communities; and how innovative public policies are developed to improve economic prosperity, social justice and well-being, and environmental sustainability at the local, state, national, and global levels.
Students who earn the minor will be able to analyze the impact of past and current public policies, understand the institutions and process of policy making, and develop new public policies to tackle pressing challenges faced by our society. They will be prepared to enter policy-making fields in their areas of interest, and to make communities, states, and nations more resilient, inclusive, and prosperous.
The minor is awarded by University College.
