Social Policy & Policy Analysis

Social policy at the Humphrey School puts issues of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual identity, employment, age, and immigrant status at the center of inquiry. In looking at social policy in the U.S. and globally, students look beyond governmental actors to understand how nonprofit organizations and social movements create and implement policy.
