Center for Public Policy

The Center for Public Policy is a think tank focused on environmental policy, urban systems management, science and technology policy, and state and local government.

The Center for Public Policy (CPP) serves as an interdisciplinary hub for Drexel faculty who conduct policy-oriented research, and as an interface between those faculty and relevant government agencies and nonprofit organizations, especially those in the Philadelphia region.

Degrees

The Center offers a Master of Science in Public Policy and a Master of Science in Environmental Policy. The MS in Public Policy is a professional master's degree designed for people who work, or would like to work, for government or nonprofit organizations. The MS in Environmental Policy prepares students for careers as policy analysts who have a strong commitment to environmental values, are scientifically and methodologically competent, and can work effectively on policy with various groups and institutions engaged in environmental issues.

Through a flexible course schedule that includes evening and online classes, students have the option of completing either of the master’s programs at a pace that suits them. On average, students can complete the programs in as little as 18 months to two years.

Our joint JD-Master of Science in Public Policy program provides law students with a strong foundation in research, analysis, economics and law in tandem with hands-on learning and networking opportunities with nonprofit organizations and government agencies. Prospective and current law students may apply directly to the joint degree program through Drexel's Thomas R. Kline School of Law.
