Policy Tracks in the Leadership Scholars Program
The policy areas in the program are designed to inform the intellectual and activist work that scholars complete in the program. For example, the policy area will relate to the focus of your internship, social action project, and capstone seminar. Although your major may point you in one direction or another, it may not necessarily influence the work you do in the Leadership Scholars Certificate Program. Also, there are intersections across all the areas so you may want to select a primary area of interest and a supplementary one. We recognize that your interests may change as you proceed through the program, you may change your policy area/s.
Please check up to TWO Policy Area(s) that you are most interested in: *
