Our rigorous interdisciplinary Public Affairs - Community Development program from Rutgers University, brings together scholarship and applied research from the fields of public policy, public administration, law, business, and the social sciences to prepare graduates both for further doctoral study or to assume leadership positions in the non-profit sector and government.
Your coursework affords you the opportunity to work closely with first rate research faculty and peers in the doctoral program as you explore the economic, political, social and global dimensions of community development.
