The joint doctoral program in Public Administration and Public Policy is a collaboration of Auburn University and Auburn University at Montgomery whose campuses are just 50 miles apart. Auburn University, located in a rapidly developing college town, is the land-grant academic institution of Alabama. Auburn University at Montgomery is located in the Montgomery area, which serves as the capital city of the state of Alabama. Together, Auburn University and Auburn University at Montgomery serve the state of Alabama and neighboring areas in the Southeast.
In times demanding change, the joint doctoral program in Public Administration and Public Policy prepares students to become a vital part of both academia and government. The faculty at both campuses share their knowledge and expertise transforming students into confident scholars, researchers and policy leaders.
The program requires 49 credit hours: 13 courses (39 credit hours) and 10 dissertation hours. Courses for the doctoral degree are offered on both campuses. Students must take one-third of the credit hours required for the program at each campus, and faculty members from each campus serve on a student’s dissertation committee.
