OPTIONS FOR A BACHELOR
OF ARTS DEGREE
PUBLIC POLICY MAJOR
A major in Public Policy (BAPP) will lead you to
understanding public problems and how different
government entities try to deal with those problems.
Studying Public Policy helps you answer why
harmful policies exist and how to change them. From
administrative policies to ordinances and laws, we
show you how to locate, understand, and analyze
the policies that impact you, your family, and your
URBAN STUDIES MAJOR
Are you passionate about public transit, urban
sustainability, affordable housing, or city maps? Do
you care about making cities better for all people?
Do you ask yourself how Chicago came to look like it
does today, and what it might take for you to change
it? Urban Studies students examine topics such as
access to affordable housing and clean water, public
spaces for everybody, efficient transportation systems,
and how to create good jobs in cities.
CUPPA Students learn directly
from faculty who work closely with
city officials to change policy and
improve city services, as well as
community leaders, internship
speakers, and guest lecturers.
Students pursue careers such
as activists, city planners, data
analysts, policy analysts, government
and nonprofit staff, in areas like
urban agriculture, public finance,
community and economic
protection, and government services.
All majors in CUPPA take a Senior
Capstone course or internship
experience to tackle a real-world
project in collaboration with a local
non-profit or government agency.
This experience provides immersion
in the community, great problemsolving skill development, and
networking connections for job
placement later on.
