The Public Policy program aims to provide analytical tools and substantive knowledge to help students understand and analyze complex policy issues in today’s world. It offers a rigorous curriculum that provides a good knowledge base on the economy, government, and public policy and a basic analytical and methodological training in policy analysis. It also offers considerable opportunities for students to emphasize a particular policy area with a required internship.
The program provides excellent preparation for careers in public service and the non-profit sector and for graduate school in public policy and public administration.
Beyond the Classroom
Students have a wide array of opportunities for research, internships, conferences, and networking beyond the classroom that give them an advantage to prepare for life after W&J.
