University of Notre Dame
A successful government must design and implement policies that will further the economic and social interests of its citizens. The Graduate Certificate in Public Policy is designed to give graduate students an understanding of the role of the government in economic activity and public policy decision making. It focuses on how the government interacts with the economy through, for example: economic growth, stability, taxation, infrastructure provision, regulation, health, defence, education and social security.
About The Course
Students who study public policy are driven to serve the public interest. They work in all levels of government, in the not-for-profit sector, in consulting firms and in international organisations. They can be social entrepreneurs, policy analysts, consultants to government or hold public office.
