  • Students are encouraged to use the major’s flexibility to create a coursework concentration built on their interests
  • Students complete a supervised internship to gain work-related experience that helps focus their career goals and builds professional networks
  • EPP offers a study abroad opportunity in Eastern Europe
  • The EPP degree prepares students to enter careers in educational organizations, government, public service, non-profits, philanthropy, advocacy and research
