Dean Eric Schwartz says the new degree program is an important step forward for the Humphrey School of Public Affairs.
Beyond providing students with exemplary training in public policy and research, this Ph.D. program will better position the school to define the character of public affairs education in the decades to come. Graduates of this program will play multiple roles: they'll teach public affairs to future students, be in the forefront of scholarship on critical policy issues and occupy key positions in local, national and international organizations.
