November 5, 2012 09:20 AM
Boise State University has announced a new doctoral program in public policy and administration. The new program is slated to begin in the fall of 2013.
"Practical in its design, the program will prepare students for careers in public and nonprofit organizations, policy research in natural resource, environmental, science and other areas of public policy in government, nonprofits, advocacy groups and consulting organizations, as well as academic teaching/research positions," said Frank Zang, Director of Communications at Boise State University.
"The new Ph.D. program will build on the work on an internationally recognized faculty, a well-respected master's degree program in public administration, and a cadre of regionally recognized policy research centers," continued Zang. It is designed to prepare students for senior level positions in public, non-profit and international organizations or positions in an academic or researching setting. The degree provides a sound foundation in current administrative practice in public administration and its cognate disciplines within the fields of public policy and management.
Applications for the fall 2013 start will be accepted beginning December 15, 2012.
