The John Glenn College of Public Affairs offers two Graduate Minors designed to help current Ohio State graduate students expand their interests and add valuable applied skills to their degree experience, which can be designated on their transcripts.

Graduate Minor in Public Policy and Management

This program will equip students with the skills required to perform analytical and managerial tasks in a public sector setting, whether a government agency, nonprofit organization, or private firm. The purpose of this minor is to provide graduate students in disciplines across the University access to Public Policy Analysis and Management training that will serve them in their careers.


Minors offered by the Glenn College cannot be completed by those students already pursuing graduate degrees within the same college.


Public Policy and Management Minor

Graduate Minor in Nonprofit Studies

This minor introduces students to the theories and practices that shape political, organizational, economic and technological environments of nonprofit organizations. Students will learn how to analyze nonprofit management dilemmas from a strategic perspective, grounded in an awareness of nonprofit laws, standards, and best practices. With these skills, students will be able to function effectively with a variety of stakeholders from the nonprofit, private, and public sectors.
