An Interdisciplinary Program

An interdisciplinary group of faculty in the applied social sciences, behavioral sciences, agriculture, and the schools for the professions have come together to create an innovative educational and outreach program. Located in the Graduate School, our Public Policy Ph.D. program draws upon the strength of many academic departments and disciplines to meet its education, outreach and service goals.

Our focus is on training leaders who will directly affect policy issues relevant to the people of Arkansas, the region, and the nation. As part of the educational and service mission of the University of Arkansas, the new Ph.D. program provides a forum for the consideration of policy issues by students, faculty, and the larger community.
