ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The public policy degree program is designed to develop students’ knowledge and skills for service and leadership in public sector careers at the local, national, and international levels or for graduate studies in related fields. The public policy major will provide students with a biblical and theoretical foundation in public policy through course work in ethical, philosophical, historical, governmental, procedural, and managerial principles. The program will build on this foundation by offering direct experiences through seminars, internships, and events to develop practical skills and understanding for policymaking.
