Our Approach to Ph.D. Study
To be a Ph.D. student in the School of Public Policy & Administration (SPPA) is to be a member of a community of scholars. Our programs are distinctly interdisciplinary, and draw on faculty from around the University. This approach ensures that our students take a holistic approach in studying the multifaceted issues that face our society.
Student advisement in SPPA is very hands-on and is intended to nurture our students through the completion of their challenging programs. We are committed to our students and provide the support they need to complete their doctoral study and go on to a meaningful career.
Our students benefit from rigorous coursework, real-world experiential learning, and professional development education that together provide a solid foundation for successful future careers. We support our students as individuals and are invested in your success, both in the program and after graduation.
