Social & Public Policy Minor
Addressing and understanding social policy in areas ranging from education, health, and immigration to social entrepreneurship and the arts is at the heart of the Wagner School enterprise. Drawing on this traditional strength, undergraduates electing the joint Wagner-College of Arts and Science Social and Public Policy minor will receive a broad introduction to social policy-making. They can then choose from among courses covering specific areas of social policy. Whether students plan to pursue careers in the policy arena or merely remain engaged citizens, the Social and Public Policy minor provides a sturdy foundation.
Students must complete a total of 16 credits for the minor within these guidelines:
Choose one of the following (4 credits):
UPADM-GP 101, The Politics of Public Policy
