Public Policy & Analysis Minor

The minor in Public Policy and Analysis provides students with expertise in both how public policies are made and the quantitative tools necessary for evaluating the effectiveness of public policies. Completion of the minor will enable students to supplement their major field of study to gain the skills and competencies needed for post-graduate employment in public, private, and nonprofit agencies and organizations involved in the design, adoption, implementation, and evaluation of public programs.

The Public Policy and Analysis minor consists of a minimum of 8 courses and 25 credit hours. The minor includes required coursework in Political Science, Quantitative Theory and Methods, Economics, and other cognate disciplines. Please refer to the checklist found on the bottom right side of this page for the full list of required courses and approved electives. 

To declare a minor, please refer to the instructions on the Office of Undergraduate Education website. If you have any questions about the PPA minor, please contact the Political Science department's Undergraduate Program Coordinator, Rob La Terza.
