Orientation

The public policy track is organized following an interdisciplinary, comparative approach to the study of public policy-making — the problems, players, and policy. The focus is on providing skills to define, measure, evaluate, and research policy problems. Students are encouraged to intern with one of the policy-making organizations in Washington, D.C., in their effort to develop, evaluate, and implement solutions to public issues.

 

Program Organization and Curriculum

Students are encouraged to meet with an academic advisor/mentor to discuss their academic and professional interest and tailor a program of study that they should pursue as upperclassmen.
