Policy Analysis and Management (PAM)
A major for students interested in current and pressing public policy issues in America
PAM has many strengths as a department including content knowledge experts in a variety of fields. However, the most valuable element of my education was not the specific content knowledge, but the problem-solving framework instilled in nearly every class. In my role, I am typically making decisions with little to no precedent. An ability to analyze and conceptualize new problems and anticipate consequences is essential. My first exposure to this type of thinking came in my PAM classes.
