About: I created this community because I wanted a place where I could find information on public policy majors and graduate school programs in public policy. I have recently decided to major in Political Science with a specialization in public policy because I want to deal with domestic and international policies. Before I thought I had to major in International Relations. I'm also interested in applying for graduate school at Duke University's Institute of Policy and Public Affairs. I like their MPP with a concentration in Global Public Policy. However, I'm still trying to figure out for sure if I should major in this or major in Political Science with a specialization in International Relations, and attend Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School. This community is open to anyone who is trying to decide if public policy is for them, learn more about public policy,people looking for graduate school programs in public policy, current public policy majors, and especially graduate public policy students to share information on the major, careers, school information, etc.
