The PhD in Public Administration & Policy program is built around a 1-year sequence of core courses and six concentrations: Public Management, Public Finance, Organizational Behavior and Theory, Decision Analysis and Policy Sciences, Politics and Administration, and Comparative and International Administration. Each year the program admits a cohort of between 6 and 9 students. Admission is for the fall semester only. The Department of Public Administration & Policy offers support for doctoral study based strictly on merit, although the University also offers other funding opportunities for historically under-represented students and students pursuing research that aligns with externally funded research programs conducted by faculty members.
