Minor Requirements

  1. All students must take 360.247, “Introduction to Social Policy and Inequality: Baltimore and Beyond.” It is normally taught once per year in the fall semester.
  2. Students must take one course from a large array of regular Arts and Science courses. A list of currently-offered courses will be posted on the Social Policy Program. For instance, for Fall Semester 2018, courses that count as electives are listed on the electives page.
  3. Students must participate in either the Baltimore or Washington DC Policy Fellowships. These are intensive one-semester experiences, usually taken during the spring semester of one’s junior year. Students take a set of five courses in Baltimore designed for the major and open only to them. View the curricula and internship experiences pages.
  4. Finally, students must take 360.401, Social Policy Senior Seminar. This capstone seminar course, normally offered in the fall semester, involves discussion and research among students who have completed the intensive semester and is intended to build up experiences in that semester.
