PPOL Description of Specialization Areas (AY 2022 - 2023)
PPOL students who started at DU on or after Fall 2021 are required to have at least one specialization. This allows students the opportunity to add depth to their studies and to begin to develop an area of focus within the field of public policy. To complete the specialization, the student must complete three classes (12 credits) in one of the specialization areas. PPOL specialization courses do not need to have the PPOL prefix to count towards specialization and credit requirements for the PPOL major. Courses on the pre-approved specialization/elective list can be attributed to specialization credits.
PPOL students who started at DU before Fall 2021 are not requried to have a specialization.
