There are many resources at the UCI Libraries devoted to the study of Social Ecology, an interdisciplinary and applied area of the social, behavioral sciences and environmental sciences that studies different aspects of the human condition. The specific collection to serve the MA Program in Public Policy (MURP) is relatively young as is the academic program here and it is focused upon the general materials, and the specific research interests and coursework that is offered at the present by faculty in the department. The collection has grown rapidly in parallel with the program expanding its emphases, reflecting more of a global outlook of public policy orientation as more faculty and students join it. Some of the current special interests reflect strong interdisciplinary interests and include: economics, transportation, sustainability, political science, history, geographical information systems (GIS), public opinion, demography, urban planning and development, housing, consumer behavior, criminal justice, law and society, environmental sciences, water sciences, health psychology & promotions, poverty, international development, found throughout the School of Social Ecology and across related disciplines throughout the campus.
