Letters of Specialization

Data Analytics for Politics, Policy and Legal Studies (DAPPLS)

The Department of Political Science announces a new Letter of Specialization in Data Analytics for Politics, Policy and Legal Studies (DAPPLS). The new specialization offers many benefits to current and prospective undergraduates. Students gain from increased course offerings that provide them with transferable and career relevant skills. A letter of specialization does not appear on a student transcript but is included in student files and cited as a credential on resumes, personal statements and in letters of recommendation. Some students may want to combine the Letter of Specialization with the accelerated MA program in the Department of Political Science to build greater expertise in data analytic skills that are likely to be highly attractive for positions across the public, nonprofit and private sectors. Students who complete the letter will have a strong foundation in the basics of designing social and political research, as well as more extensive training in at least two techniques for collecting and analyzing data.
