How do you want to change the world?
Do you see yourself working in a nonprofit organization or in a governmental agency? As a lobbyist or in public advocacy? Have you ever thought about running for office some day? If so, consider adding the Public Affairs Minor.
The Public Affairs Minor is an interdisciplinary program that introduces you to the world of public policymaking and administration. You will learn about how and why governments do what they do, and you will explore a policy area of your choosing—for example environmental, family, health, or criminal justice policy. You will also learn about a wide variety of public-service careers and graduate degree programs.
