The two specializations in the Social Research area were updated this summer:

  • Markets and Public Policy (previously titled Business and Public Policy)
  • Markets and Civil Society (previously titled Business and Society)

These changes were made in order to:

  1. Align better with the markets- and economic thought-focus of these specializations.
  2. Align better with the new university-wide minor in Markets, Human Rights, and Civil Society which is now offered to non-Busch students.

These changes apply immediately, from current seniors to incoming freshmen. To find out more about the Markets-specializations in Social Research, attend the upcoming Freshman Fridays on September 2nd with the Social Research area director and faculty, or email area director Professor Catherine Pakaluk at
