Public Policy BS


Return to Degrees Offered (Majors, Minors) Return to: Degrees Offered (Majors, Minors)

Public policy is a science dedicated to study of the policies and laws implemented by governments to address the needs of contemporary society. The bachelor of science in public policy is aimed at exploration and analysis of the historical legacies as well as the contemporary forces that frame the policy making process. Public policy at CWU is not free-standing and must be combined with another major. Since the expertise of all of the scientific and humanistic disciplines is required to craft and implement policy across the full range of governmental activity the study of public policy must be interdisciplinary. Consequently, the Public Policy Program is built around offerings from a core of participating departments, frequently economics, environmental studies, geography and political science.
