Students in our Public and Urban Policy master's program ask questions that challenge conventional policy definitions to rethink critical urban issues.
Partner with policymakers in government agencies and nonprofit organizations to design creative solutions to real-world urban policy issues. Work within a community of scholar-practitioners to put theory into practice in the intensive Urban Policy Lab, and challenge the status quo to create
initiatives that drive real innovation in social and urban policy.
Change begins with a question. What will you ask?
In the intensive, six-credit Urban Policy Lab, students apply classroom theories to real-world projects in government agencies, NGOs, nonprofits, and start-ups around the world.
The Urban Policy Lab is an immersive 6-credit course at the heart of this program. Students collaborate in small teams to resolve pressing policy issues for public or nonprofit client. Students undertake research, analysis, and formal presentations for major NYC organizations and government agencies.
