Public Policy

Advising

Advising in Public Policy begins with a conversation with Undergraduate Concentrations Manager Anita Nester. Anita will explain the concentration requirements and help you prepare and adjust your concentration declaration over time.  Once your declaration is complete, Professor Levitas and Anita will work with you on the assignment of a specialization advisor whose expertise and experience align with your interests.  Your specialization advisor will help you explore research and career interests and provide advice about independent study and internship opportunities, as well as thesis and capstone projects.
