Public Policy Analytics Minor
The Howard H. Baker Jr. School of Public Policy and Public Affairs offers a minor in public policy analytics that is open to students pursuing any major. The minor is intended to provide skills in employing advanced analytical methods that have become critical to the design, implementation and evaluation of public policy on the part of government agencies, nonprofits, think tanks and academicians. Students are exposed to the foundations of public policy and the policy-making process, analytical tools from economics and political science, quantitative methods and program evaluation techniques, subject matter from a selected public policy field and development of a portfolio that requires hands-on applications in conducting public policy research.
Please review the minor requirements, based on your catalog year. If you have any questions about the minor requirements or course petitions, please contact Lindsay Herrell (email@example.com).
Admission occurs on a rolling basis. Typically, students add the minor as Sophomores after exploring their academic interests, but students at all levels are encouraged to consider whether the minor fits with their career goals and academic plans. Students who want to learn more or wish to be considered for admission should start by filling out the interest form. We will reach out to set up an initial meeting and share application instructions.
Please be sure to communicate your interest with your assigned academic advisor before completing the interest form. Students are required to meet with their minor advisor upon admission to the minor.
