Public Policy Studies



The minor in public policy studies is an interdisciplinary program designed to introduce students to the analytical skills and institutional perspective characteristic of careers in public service. Courses address the political context of policy making, alternative disciplinary approaches to policy formation and implementation, and appreciation of value conflicts in the policy process. In addition, students are encouraged to pursue substantive policy issues that draw on the expertise of Wheaton faculty members in such areas as environmental regulations, criminal justice, technological development, labor-management relations, poverty and welfare, anti-trust and regulation, and health care.
