Public Policy Minors may also pursue an independent study project (PBPL 91) to fulfill one of the substantive policy course requirements. Students who wish to pursue the Minor must officially sign up for it no later than the third term prior to graduation and are encouraged to enroll during their sophomore or junior year. The six courses required for the Minor may not count toward a student's major or another minor. Over the past three years, the Public Policy Minor has attracted increasing attention from students. Up from single digits in years passed, 24 students will be graduating in the Class of 2008 with Minors in Public Policy. PBPL 5 was offered for the first time last winter. The course was originally limited to 50 students, but it grew to 60 after several class meetings, including 43 first-year students. This winter, PBPL 5 has 82 students enrolled, including more than 60 first-year students. We expect the number of graduating Minors to increase as the Classes of 2010 and 2011 and beyond complete their undergraduate careers. 2.
