Get ready to lead in the 21st century.
Our rapidly changing global environment needs thinkers and doers capable of handling constantly emerging challenges. As our society faces increasingly complex legal and social concerns such as aging populations, environmental and health-care dilemmas, ineffective educational systems and homelessness, we turn to those who can handle our global village's rapid changes.
What it's all about:
The B.A. in Policy, Politics and International Affairs (formerly Government and Public Policy) program is far from a traditional political science program; instead, it combines public administration, public policy, political theory, comparative government and international relations. You'll learn to apply analytical skills to national and global problems of the 21st century.
You can prepare for a career in:
- federal, state and local government
- the foreign service
- campaign management
- health administration
- public and private organizations that monitor or influence political processes or public policy.
Students can complete their upper-level major requirements for the B.A. in Policy, Politics and International Affairs fully online, in-person, or a combination of both. Some qualified transfer students may be able to complete the requirements for this bachelor’s degree entirely online. (NOTE: Coursework outside of the major may not be offered online.)
This program is designed specifically for students who lead busy lives or live and work far from UBalt's Baltimore campus.
Accelerated Bachelor's to Master's
The University of Baltimore offers an accelerated option that lets you take up to 9 graduate credits that "double count" toward both your Policy, Politics and International Affairs degree and either the M.A. in Global Affairs and Human Security or the Master of Public Administration—saving you time and money! Get a head start on your graduate degree while saving up to $9,000.
