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 an interdisciplinary program aimed at exploration and analysis of the historical legacies as well as the contemporary forces that frame the policy making process. Because the world is increasingly pluralistic, public policy at CWU is not free-standing and must be combined with another major, frequently economics, environmental studies, geography, public health, political science, or sociology (students combining public policy and geography, political science, public health, or sociology will receive a bachelor of science degree in public policy and a bachelor of arts degree in geography or political science, public health, or sociology).

Electives in economics, environmental studies, geography, information technology and management, law and justice, political science, public health, or sociology.
