The PhD in Public Policy & Administration is a new 4-year PhD program completely taught in English, which will start in the academic year 2014-15. The program is designed for highly qualified and motivated students who wish to acquire knowledge of the constantly evolving frameworks used to understand the dynamics of public policies, as well as cutting edge research skills used to evaluate both public policies and the social dynamics that are implicated in them.
A key feature of the program is the combination of multi-disciplinary training in both theory and methods and an evidence-based approach. A core theme of the program is the implications of globalization and the need for an international comparative perspective for understanding policy formation, implementation, and outcomes. The program strives for maximum social relevance and emphasizes major and minor specialisations that are highly appreciated for both academic and non-academic employment (e.g., NGOs, governmental agencies, the EU, UN departments, think tanks and public policy consultancies). Successful graduates will be uniquely qualified for high-level policy analysis in sub-national, national, and international organizations.
The program is organized around advanced study in two of four fields: economic and political institutions, health, social dynamics, and public administration.
