The links above and at the left will take you to descriptions of our areas of specialization. These specializations are flexible and allow for a student to explore particular interests within the specialization structure. In those cases where a prospective student might have a policy interest that does not fit into one of these specializations, it may be possible for the program to accommodate that interest.

Contact us to discuss that possibility. Through a special arrangement with the Law School, law school courses may be taken for elective credit. No law school course taken for credit in the Ph.D. program will be accepted for law school credit if the student should, at a later time, enroll in law school.

We would be glad to make arrangements for interested students to speak with specialization faculty. Just let us know.
