Major in Policy Analysis

Improve public policy and impact the world—in your hometown, in D.C., in the United Nations

Anyone can tell you there are two sides to every story—but policy analysts will tell you there are dozens. With a major in Policy Analysis, you will develop skills in identifying, dissecting, and improving policy by looking at every side of the story. You'll study everything from finance, economics, and law, to urban problems and solutions, to national and international policy—graduating ready to launch a career in your hometown, your state capital, Washington, D.C., or the United Nations.

Policy Analysis is a math-heavy, quantitative major that uses advanced statistical modeling. Our major will introduce concepts and skills at a level you can digest, but at the same time challenge you and advance your abilities. And, you'll learn from the same faculty who teach our graduate programs—programs that are ranked among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.
