Social Research and Public Policy Major
Designing and evaluating policy depends on social science theory and research. Social Research and Public Policy (SRPP) offers rigorous training in both, with courses in economics, political science, sociology, and anthropology, as well as courses in quantitative and qualitative research methods, which will enable students to critically evaluate research findings and produce original research.
Social Research and Public Policy is attractive to students who are concerned with the major social problems of our times such as international migration, unequal economic development, poverty, racism and sexism, inequality, ethnic conflict, as well as health inequality and population dynamics.
