History of Public Policy

What is History of Public Policy?

 The B.A. in the history of public policy, the first to be offered in American higher education, combines comparative studies in history with studies in related academic disciplines. Students are expected to acquire competence in a foreign language, in statistics and computer operations, and in research and writing skills, culminating in the preparation of a senior thesis. An internship in governmental and public affairs is strongly recommended.

The major concentrates on the social process that is central and common to the making of public policy. They 

emphasize the history of public policy in various nations and time periods, from the ancient Greeks to our present day world. Focusing on time, economic, and social factors they begin to understand how governments in their own times reached critical policy decisions and the difficulties they encountered when implementing those policies.
