School of Public Policy associate professor Richard Barke was featured in the latest edition of INSIGHT Into Diversity. Dr. Barke was featured in an article that discussed how public policy degrees could lucrative jobs. In the article, Dr. Barke notes that he has seen growing interest in the public policy undergraduate degree at Georgia Tech. The bachelor of science program at the School of Public Policy has doubled in size over the past four years.

The article mentions that Georgia Tech prepares its undergraduates by requiring at least one internship for academic credit. Dr. Barke adds that many students complete second or third internships, a degree component which gives them “wide experience and perspectives on careers.” Students are also required to complete a capstone project solving problems provided by businesses, government organizations, and NGOs.

Dr. Barke says the word is getting out about the value of the undergraduate program at the School of Public Policy. Over the last five years, some of the top management consulting firms in the U.S. have begun recruiting Georgia Tech public policy bachelor’s degree graduates.

Dr. Barke also stresses the School of Public Policy's awareness of needing to continue reaching out to traditionally underrepresented student populations about our curriculum, our educational culture, and professional opportunities for BSPP students and alumni.
