The Public Policy Program is accepting applications for the Fall 2019 PhD student cohort. Join our faculty and students who study a range of important policy issues in the areas of education, elections, social and economic inequality, health, governance, crime, security, justice, economic development, transportation, energy, urban and regional development. Faculty and students also study broader topics related to the policy process such as policy diffusion, institutional effects on policy, policy framing, and public opinion and representation. Program training emphasizes the development of strong foundations in economics, research design, and analytic skills combined with interdisciplinary approaches to addressing complex problems, and collaboration research with faculty and peers. Students from our program have taken positions in policy think-tanks, academia, government, and industry. Learn more at our admissions page. Students who apply early will be considered for full funding packages including a stipend and tuition support. For more information, please contact us!
