About

The School offers a wide variety of master’s programs, joint degree programs, graduate certificate programs, and one of the nation’s premier doctorate programs. The Public Policy and Social Work programme is offered at the University of Maryland .

Overview

Key facts:

  • The School’s location just outside of Washington, D.C. attracts a stellar faculty of scholar-practitioners who are experts in the theory and practice of public policy and management and influential participants in the nation’s policy-making process. The location and faculty in turn attract outstanding students by providing them, not only an in-depth, rich curriculum, but extensive exposure to and interaction with the real-life world of policy-making, the federal government, the international diplomatic community, state and local governments, and a host of non-governmental and multinational organizations. 
  • The Public Policy and Social Work program offered at the University of Maryland is one of the few policy schools to combine state, national and international policy study under one roof, and to take into account policy interests in all sectors of the economy, thus allowing both faculty and students to study the full range of issues in all courses and in all research.
