Ph.D. in Public Administration and Public Policy
The joint doctoral program in Public Administration and Public Policy is a collaboration of Auburn University and Auburn University at Montgomery (the two campuses are just 50 miles apart). Auburn University, located in a fast 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 Auburn University/Auburn University at Montgomery doctoral program 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 forty-nine credit hours: thirteen courses (thirty-nine credit hours) and ten 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 are required to serve on a student’s dissertation committee.
