As indicated on the EPP Course Requirement Checksheet, students have many choices of topics and emphases in the Supporting Courses and Related Areas portion of the requirements for the major. Students may choose from a list of interdisciplinary concentrations, including:

  • Child Maltreatment
  • Sustainability
  • Politics and Rhetoric
  • Race and Ethnicity
  • Gender and Sexuality
  • Women, Children and Families
  • Crime, Law and Justice
  • Global Studies

Students can also propose their own focus area. We encourage selection of a theme to structure the coursework for the third column of the curriculum check sheet for the categories of Policy Problems and Public Systems, Leadership, Decision-Making & Ethics, Diversity & Equity, and Major-related selections. Examples of coursework within each theme above can be found here.

The courses below, linked to their descriptions in the University Bulletin of Undergraduate Degree Programs, currently meet the requirements for the major. Other courses may be substituted with permission of the EPP faculty.
