The Philosophy and Public Policy interdisciplinary approach from University of Massachusetts Boston combines a solid preparation in political philosophy with study of public policy issues in philosophy and other departments. This major prepares students for eventual careers in government, politics, or the law.
This subject is both academic and practical: besides giving students an appreciation of the importance of philosophical investigation and study we aim to help them become reflective and responsible citizens.
The students graduate equipped with interpretive, analytical, and argumentative skills, as well as with a broad knowledge of the history of ideas, which informs their understanding of the challenges of contemporary life and society. These skills can be applied in many fields, and our graduates pursue careers in law, government, journalism, the arts, business, education, and academia.
