Prepare for a Career in the Public Sector


Students majoring in Political Science may choose to complete a concentration in Public Policy.  Courses within the concentration focus on the process of governmental policy-making; policy-analysis; policy-implementation; and the implications of policy choices.  Students will receive training that prepares them well for careers in the public sector or non-governmental organizations engaged in activities such as policy design, community service and advocacy.

To complete the concentration, students must fulfill all the requirements of the Political Science major, and include a select list of classes in their course of study. To learn more about the concentration and the needed courses, visit the MSMU Course Catalogue.
