About the Minor

Ramapo College offers a flexible, interdisciplinary sequence of courses, listed below, leading to a minor in Public Policy. The Public Policy minor has been designed to complement such majors as Political Science, Social Work, and Environmental Studies.

The added focus on Public Policy turns the student's attention to problems and solutions in the world of public events. The Public Policy minor enhances effective citizenship and analytical rigor, giving the student a concrete focus on application of principles and methods generated by the major.

Full-time faculty and staff join with professional practitioners in staffing the Public Policy minor. The faculty teaching in this program come from several of the academic schools at Ramapo College: the School of American and International Studies, the Anisfield School of Business, and the School of Social Science and Human Service.

Students earning the Public Policy minor often go on to graduate work, either at the Masters of Ph.D. level in the field of Public Policy. Public administration careers are available to Public Policy minors. Federal, state, and local government employ professionals with a background in Public Policy.
