Public Policy


Advising in Public Policy begins with a conversation with Melissa Nicholaus (Academic Program Manager).  Melissa will explain the concentration requirements and help you both prepare and adjust your concentration declaration over time.  Once your declaration is complete, Professor Levitas will work with you and Melissa to assign you a specialization advisor whose expertise and experience align with your interests.  Your specialization advisor will help you explore your research and career interests and provide advice about independent study and internship opportunities, as well as thesis and capstone projects.
