Program Description:

MS Urban Policy Analysis and Mangement Improving Quality of Life for Urban Communities The Urban Policy Analysis and Management Program trains professionals and managers committed to improving the quality of life for urban communities and their residents. One of the first programs of its kind in the country, it prepares students for a wide range of jobs in the public and nonprofit sectors that focus on the development, assessment, and implementation of urban policies and programs. Graduates work as policy analysts in governmental agencies, as administrators of government programs, and as program managers and executives at nonprofit organizations. The program offers a flexible curriculum tailored to the interests and needs of individual students. Doctoral Program: Public and Urban Policy Today’s public policy issues are complex and require a greater level of analysis and insight then in the past. This program seeks to train individuals at a doctoral level to work in the highest levels of government, nonprofit, and think-tanks with the ability to discern and develop broad public policy solutions. The PhD Program in Public and Urban Policy is committed to providing students with a deep theoretical and institutional understanding of contemporary urban problems and the technical skills necessary to not only carry out scholarly research but also to design and manage public policy. Reflecting The New School’s tradition of critical inquiry, the doctoral program emphasizes the social, political, and normative dimensions of policy analysis. Socially responsible and equitable outcomes are essential to good public policy decision-making.
