Government and Public Policy Minor

The Government and Public Policy minor is reserved for students studying a major outside of SGPP.

The SGPP Minor may NOT be completed by SGPP students majoring in LAW, CJS, PMPC, or Political Science.

Minor Overview

The Government and Public Policy (GPP) minor accommodates the interests and needs of students from a variety of degree programs. The GPP minor is an excellent supplement to other majors within and outside the social sciences arena. By introducing students to the various sub-fields of political science and public policy, the GPP minor allows students to gain foundational knowledge of political processes and institutions.
