More information 


The PhD program in Community and Public Affairs (CPA) prepares students for public scholarship focused on addressing critical social and community issues, such as educational inequality, racism and gender-based violence both near and far. Our curriculum draws from varied disciplines, including but not limited to anthropology, demography, criminology, geography, sociology and psychology to research the dynamic interplay among individuals, the organizations serving them, as well as the communities and societies in which they are embedded. Students entering our program typically have several years of practice experience in a variety of fields such as education, counseling, human services, public health, public administration, social work or student affairs administration. Most importantly, students should hold a commitment to social justice, human rights, public service, social welfare and/or community transformation.
