Thomas Jefferson Program in Public Policy
"Named after President Thomas Jefferson, the Jefferson Program provides students with the intellectual tools needed to improve the quality of policymaking in the United States and abroad. It is an interdisciplinary major that focuses on analytical decision making to study diverse subjects ranging from the processes of making, implementing and evaluating government policies to the ethical evaluation of contemporary social problems."
