Students graduating with a minor in Public Policy and Public Affairs at The City University of New York pursue careers in government and nonprofit organizations as research assistants, policy analysts, and policy makers.
Many students begin their professional careers as interns in Washington, DC and eventually pursue graduate degrees in public administration or public policy. Students wishing to pursue graduate study in these fields should consider taking intermediate microeconomics and econometrics (after the necessary prerequisites) and should prepare to take the graduate record examination (GRE) before applying to graduate schools.
The public service management program at City College offers a master's degree in public administration. The program offers generous support to students and currently does not require the GRE.
