The Public Policy and Public Management second major is designed to provide students with a general foundation in the nature of public and non-profit workplaces and their political, psychological, and legal environments. In addition, the major heightens students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills through various types of field research and case studies. In particular, the major is unique in its emphasis on the integration of academic study with real policy problems that is further enhanced through the Public Policy Task Force Programme. The Task Force is an important part of the PPPM curriculum and is designed to give students the opportunity to apply knowledge and skills acquired in the classrooms to real world problems. Students will engage in collaborative, client-oriented, and problem-solving projects on critical public policy and management issues.
The PPPM faculty will work closely with practitioners with extensive experience in policy and management from both the private and public sectors to allow students to gain practical insights on government and public affairs. Upon completion of this second major, students will be well equipped to pursue careers in non-profit, public and private sector organizations.
