Program Description:

The Public Policy Studies study-abroad program with the University of Glasgow was initiated in 1982 by Institute Founding Director Joel Fleishman. It is a unique and highly popular feature of the Public Policy major.

Each fall a seminar-size contingent of students travels to Scotland to study policy issues at a university historically esteemed for its contributions to political economy and moral philosophy (Adam Smith called Glasgow home). More recently, the university has also become noted in such applied areas as social administration, international law, and urban planning.

Students may go to Glasgow in the fall of either their junior or senior year. Students from all majors are welcome to apply. Public Policy Studies majors must complete PUBPOL 155 and two PUBPOL core courses in order to participate in this program. These requirements are waived for non-PUBPOL majors.
