New Undergraduate Degree Program

September 3, 2019

The Watson Institute announces a new undergraduate degree program, International and Public Affairs, which equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary to be engaged global citizens. This concentration offers three tracks: Development, Policy & Governance, and Security. The concentration is committed to engaging students in the classroom, enabling research opportunities with faculty and in the field, and supporting experiential work opportunities.

The Institute will continue to offer Public Policy through 2023. We urge students expected to graduate in '22 and '23 to talk to the International and Public Affairs staff and faculty to determine which concentration is best to pursue.
