Public Policy Analysis
Description:The influence of public policy is pervasive in our society. It affects the quality of the air we breathe and the water we drink. It affects our access to education and medical care. It determines the duties of our police at home and our troops overseas. It influences the pace of technological change and the extent of poverty. As a student in the Bachelor of Public Affairs and Policy Management program, you will examine a wide variety of issues facing society today, and develop the necessary skills and knowledge to address them.

The program does this through a curriculum that combines interdisciplinary study of civic institutions and processes with rigorous study of public policy. A selection of courses in political science, economics, law, communications, and history is combined with exclusive courses in public policy. Together, these courses will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of what government, civil and business organizations do, why they do it, and how they might do it better.

Our program offers four specializations, each containing concentrations that reflect specific policy areas within the broader specialization field:

* Communication and Policy Studies
* Development Policy Studies
* International Policy Studies
* Public Policy and Administration
