Ph.D. in Public Policy and Administration - Public Management and Leadership (Mixed-Model)
Offered By: Walden University
The Ph.D. in Public Policy and Administration prepares you to meet the challenges of social governance and effective service delivery as government and nonprofit institutions become increasingly intertwined. To have robust communities, leaders must have the vision to create plans, develop policies and manage resources within and at the boundaries between economic sectors. As a result, we need leaders in public service whose practice is grounded in scientific inquiry and scholarship, and who are prepared not only to improve our democratic institutions, but also to add to our understanding of those institutions.
The mixed-model option is a more flexible program of study that includes online courses and Walden's signature Knowledge Area Modules (KAMs). Study independently and work closely with a faculty mentor to apply your research to an area in which you are passionate.
