The Ph.D. in Law & Public Policy is an interdisciplinary public policy program that provides a comprehensive view of the policy making process and its outcomes from a law and social science perspective. Our interdisciplinary focus means that students come from a variety of backgrounds. Students quickly find that engaging in a classroom with other students who hold degrees such as the MBA, JD, MPH, or other social science degrees is quite an intellectually stimulating experience. Areas of policy emphasis include Health Policy, Sustainability and Climate Change, Crime, Law, and Justice, Labor Market Analysis and Workforce Development Policy, and Urban Policy. Many graduates are in tenure-track academic positions, others are well-placed in government, the court system or policy research positions.
