Undergraduate Program in Public Policy

UCR is currently the only UC campus to offer a public policy major. Housed in the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (CHASS), UCR's undergraduate public policy program provides you with the research, analytical, and management skills needed for careers in public service as well as not-for-profit and for-profit organizations.

As an undergraduate public policy major you can specialize in two of six tracks:

  • health/population policy
  • social/cultural/family policy
  • economic policy
  • urban/environmental policy
  • policy institutions and processes
  • international/foreign policy

You may use courses from 12 departments to satisfy program requirements: anthropology, economics, environmental sciences, ethnic studies, film and visual culture, history, political science, philosophy, psychology, religious studies, sociology, and women's studies.
