Minor in Public Service

The public service minor develops a commitment to public service and will instill public-regarding values in you, including the value of good citizenship. The minor stresses the ethical implications of government decisions. An internship experience in Washington, D.C., is incorporated into the minor, giving you a look into the practical consequence of government decisions and the broader principles of public good that should guide these decisions.
