Situated in one of America's great public universities, the Ford School is large enough to satisfy diverse intellectual and policy interests—and small enough to offer a warm, supportive, inclusive educational community. The Ford School is a nationally recognized leader in quantitative policy analysis, political and ethical analysis, social policy, communication, and leadership. All coursework reflects our deep commitment to public service and policy engagement.
