Public Policy Analysis

The Program in Public Policy Analysis (PPA) offered through Pomona College is designed to provide students with the interdisciplinary understanding necessary for policy analysis, together with practical experience in the public affairs arena. The program combines most of the requirements for an existing major in the social sciences at Scripps College (anthropology, economics, politics and international relations, and psychology) with required public policy courses. Students interested in the PPA major must have a Scripps faculty adviser within the Scripps major, but should also contact the Pomona College Public Policy Analysis Program Coordinator, Richard Worthington.

See guidelines concerning off-campus majors and cross-registration. Dual or double majors that include PPA must be most carefully constructed to avoid exceeding all double-counting limits.
