Applications are being accepted to UCI’s new master’s in public policy program. Beginning in fall 2011, the two-year course of study will bring together the expertise of faculty from the School of Social Ecology and the School of Social Sciences. The first new public policy program in Southern California in decades, it will train students to become leaders in the development and management of policies leading to a more effective public sector, a more productive private sector and more vibrant communities. Applications must be submitted to the Graduate Division no later than April 1.
