Employment and Graduate Studies

Social Research and Public Policy majors will be regarded as excellent candidates for law school, and for graduate programs such as:

  • public policy
  • business school
  • public health
  • education
  • urban planning
  • social work

Graduates will have a good chance to land in jobs working for NGOs, in public service, urban planning, and community action. Its breadth and its emphasis on critical thinking and hands-on empirical research, especially research linked to policy questions, distinguish the major.

 

I intend to continue to study Public Policy and reflect on ways we can reform education so that we empower the youth through knowledge and character development.
