    The School of Public Policy is a global institution with students from almost 60 countries. It offers academic programs  that support students to develop the skills they will need to identify, define, and address compelling and emerging public policy problems. Our faculty include top researchers and practitioners with extensive experience in the not-for-profit, public, and private sectors. Their expertise enriches the classes they teach on a wide range of public policy topics including development, human rights, media, and governance.

QUICK FACT / SPP is home to two policy centers: the Center for Media, Data and Society, and the Shattuck Center on Conflict, Negotiation and Recovery that provide students with valuable opportunities to engage with practitioners and participate in projects; and to the Global Policy Academy that organizes certificate courses that are open primarily to policymakers.

CAREER PATH / SPP equips students with policy knowledge, analytical frameworks, qualitative and quantitative skills, and practical experiences to make a positive difference in the world.
