The Sanford School's undergraduate Public Policy Studies (PPS) major attracts many students to our multi-disciplinary problem-solving curriculum. PPS is one of the most popular majors at Duke, with about 200 students graduating from the program each year. PPS graduates are passionate about policy and making a difference in the world. Many graduates go on to careers in government, nonprofits, law or the private sector where their analytical and memo writing skills are highly valued
