Program Overview

A minor in public policy is available to all undergraduates at CWRU. The course requirements are in four categories: the public policy process; economic analysis; policy or political institutions or history; and a specific policy field. Substitutions can be made under exceptional circumstances, at the discretion of the program director. 

Undergraduate or graduate courses with public policy content are offered through the Departments of Anthropology, Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences, History, Political Science, and Sociology in the College of Arts and Sciences; the Department of Economics and other departments in the Weatherhead School of Management; the School of Law, the School of Medicine, and the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing; and the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences. Students can engage with policy issues both through courses and through the extracurricular programming of the Center for Policy Studies and other university bodies.
