The Public Policy program trains students to become professional policy analysts and program evaluators for government agencies, non-profit advocacy and research groups, and private firms. An interdisciplinary curriculum exposes students to policy and research fundamentals that stress the identification, evaluation and implementation of policy initiatives. Participation in the Policy and Evaluation Lab gives students hands-on experience, an ongoing Policy Seminar provides a forum for student collaboration, integration with the local policy community, and the inculcation of professional values and norms.
