B.S. in Public Policy Georgia State University


Course info


For our Public Policy program, we seek talented and motivated students who want to develop the knowledge, skills and values required to become responsible and visionary leaders in a wide range of settings.  While many graduates of our program choose to enter a career in the public sector or in nonprofit agencies, others make contributions to their community, state, and nation as active citizens in the civic and public arenas.

If you look at the career of the namesake of our college, Ambassador Andrew Young, you see an illustration of how individuals can move from nonprofit organizations to public life and the private sector, while being a part of our increasingly global society.  Students in the B.S. in Public Policy program learn about the institutions of a democracy and the ways in which policy making organizations relate to one another.  Students acquire skills in policy writing, critical thinking, and analysis that are in demand by governmental agencies and nonprofit groups, as well as graduate and professional schools.  Above all, they learn how to make a difference by becoming engaged in civic and public life.

A policy major can work as a city manager, community relations specialist, local or regional planner, policy analyst, environmental resource specialist, human resource manager, journalist, politician or campaign strategist, volunteer coordinator, nonprofit leader, or in many other exciting careers that make a difference.
