If you want to turn your interest in politics into a career—working in diplomacy and the foreign service, homeland security, human rights and social justice advocacy, lobbying, or political campaigns—consider a major or minor in Law and Public Policy. You’ll explore how legal institutions and their leaders shape public policy, and you’ll learn how to use the law to accomplish your goals, whether you work for a government agency, a nonprofit, or a business. This degree is also good preparation for law school.
You’ll learn from top faculty from across the Indiana University campus, including stellar faculty at IU’s Maurer School of Law:
- David Delaney, former Deputy Associate General Counsel in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and an expert on cybersecurity.
- Luis Fuentes-Rohwer, attorney, and expert in the way institutions craft and implement the ground rules of American politics.
- Aviva A. Orenstein, professor and Val Nolan Faculty Fellow, expert in evidence and family law.
