public policy phd w/ focus on national security?

Recommended Posts

Princeton WWS has a Security Studies concentration within the Public Policy PhD program.  Johns Hopkins SAIS also has something similar.  Both are fairly small programs (fewer than 5 admits per year).  The Fletcher School at Tufts, is not technically a policy school but it has a similar focus and a well-regarded program--not sure how large their cohorts are.  There may be others, but not many.  A public policy PhD is itself not all that common.


Moving from Public Policy departments to Political Science, you could look at the security specializations within International Relations at MIT, Columbia, Harvard, Ohio State, Texas A&M and a couple of others.  Slightly different focus, but still doing policy-relevant work and well-regarded.

It sounds like the Pardee School at RAND should be a good match. I'm not super familiar with their program, but you should look into it, given RAND's strong credentials in the field of national security.
