"The undergraduate curriculum combines knowledge and perspective from multiple disciplines while ensuring the mastery of one policy area or set of issues” — Christina Davis, Former Faculty Chair of the Undergraduate Program
WWS Undergraduate Core Curriculum
The core curriculum is founded upon WWS courses, cross-listed with multiple departments, that are relevant to the study of policy making, policy analysis and policy evaluation. Students take courses in economics, politics, and either psychology or sociology. One course in ethics and one in science policy are also required. Students enroll in policy seminars in the junior year and write a policy thesis in the senior year. In addition, students can choose electives from a wide range of policy-relevant courses throughout the university.
