PPIA Welcomes Georgia Tech to the Consortium!

Posted on October 5th, 2015

Model Release-YESPPIA is pleased to announce that the School of Public Policy at the Georgia Institute of Technology has joined our consortium of nationally-ranked graduate programs to support the mission of increasing inclusion and diversity in graduate education.

The School of Public Policy at Georgia Tech is distinctive for focusing on policy issues where science, technology, and innovation are of critical concern and offers graduate degrees with specializations in science and technology policy, energy and environmental policy, information and communication technology policy, and urban and regional economic development policy. The School also partners with Georgia Tech’s School of City and Regional Planning to offer a unique 3-yr dual degree program in which students earn both a M.S. in Public Policy and a M.S. in City and Regional Planning and with the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University to offer a joint PhD degree.

With approximately 30 faculty and 75 graduate students, the School of Public Policy offers graduate students the opportunity to interact closely with our award-winning faculty in small classes and as members of research teams addressing real-world policy problems. Students also benefit from access to the resources of Georgia Tech and its top-ranked science and engineering programs as well as Georgia Tech’s location within the City of Atlanta and the proximity this location offers to policymaking at the city and state level.
