Careers in Public Policy and Health Care Policy

One of the benefits of our Public Policy and Health Care Policy degrees is their flexibility. These majors can be a foundation for careers in consulting, finance, tech, education, health care administration, advocacy, politics, government, and more. You’ll also be prepared to advance your education in a graduate school, including top law schools. You’ll graduate with the analytic, research, and writing skills that will prepare you for a wide range of leadership roles.
