Public Policy Major, BS

Public policy is not a free-standing major. It is normally taken in conjunction with a major in economics (general economics or managerial economics options), geography, or political science. Students who combine majors in public policy and either geography or political science will receive a bachelor of science degree in public policy and a bachelor of arts degree in geography or political science. As some public policy requirements and electives count toward both degrees or majors, the actual amount of additional coursework needed to fulfill the requirements of the second degree or major may be as low as 17 credits.

Subtotal Credits: 35

Department-approved electives in Economics, Geography, or Political Science: Credits 12-15

Total Credits: 51-55
