Public Policy major at Uchicago

<p>Although I'm only a junior in high school,I'm really interested in pubic policy, and Uchicago's program seems interesting. Are there any Uchicago students majoring in Public Policy that could put in their input on the program at Uchicago?</p>

<p>I'm not majoring in it, but I can give you some background:</p>

<ol>
<li><p>Our public policy major is connected to our graduate school of public policy, and I believe we're one of a handful of institutions to offer an undergraduate major in it. I haven't investigated that claim thoroughly, though-- however, I'd be impressed if many liberal arts colleges offered it.</p></li>
<li><p>My hardcore econ major friends scoff at public policy as "econ lite," which, in some ways, it is. Chicago's econ major is very math-heavy, and the kids who don't like the math but do like the ideas often drifts over into public policy, political science, or sociology. Some of my friends have doubled up on an econ/pp major. PP has some math-based classes, but it also has reading-based classes.</p></li>
<li><p>You can do field internships and such as part of the major.</p></li>
