The Program for Women in Politics and Public Policy is a two-semester graduate certificate program that prepares women to serve at all levels of government, take on leadership roles in non-profit organizations, hold elected office, and pursue advanced degrees, most frequently in law and public policy. The program offers a unique combination of graduate-level academic work in policy studies, analytical and research skills, and carefully supervised professional field work in addition to advising, counseling, and professional development services. The program begins in September and runs through May. Students take four courses as a cohort (in addition to their internship) that combine the theory and practice of public policy analysis and research.
