Global and Public Affairs Minor
The minor in global and public affairs is designed to give undergraduate students a deeper appreciation of the challenges in organizing the state and public management in a global context. The minor introduces students to the conduct of government and diplomacy.
Students will also learn about policy and how it is made, implemented, and evaluated, including the role of different institutions and actors in shaping policy outcomes. Students are introduced to public management issues in non-profit and government agencies, including setting strategies, developing operational plans, and managing human and financial resources to achieve the desired outcome.
The program is designed to prepare students for a broad range of careers that are focused on the resolution of public issues in government, the non-profit sector and global intergovernmental organizations. Advising for the minor is provided by the undergraduate advisers in the Department of Administration and Public Policy.
