How many current Master in Public Policy (MPP) students can you spot amongst Seward Johnson’s Were You Invited?—which was inspired by French Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s The Luncheon of the Boating Party. This sculpture resides at the Grounds for Sculpture, where our MPP students recently enjoyed an outing and happy hour after their second week of programming. Just like the painting that inspired this sculpture—which captures the...

Building on an earlier blog post on Urban Policy at the Woodrow Wilson School, this blog post will focus on the second of our optional certificates, the Certificate in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy.  We have four fields of concentration in our two Master’s degrees—the two-year MPA for those individuals earlier in their professional careers, and the one-year MPP for mid-career policy professionals. All students must indicate their...

Given recent articles that have come out this month about the increase in student debt for those attending graduate school, we want to underscore one of the distinguishing features of our programs: We fully fund tuition and required fees for all of our students regardless of external aid and irrespective of where in the world one might be from or live. If you are accepted in to one of our programs, then you are eligible for financial support for...

The Woodrow Wilson School (WWS) offers four fields of concentration for those who enroll in a master’s program, and three optional certificates.

Eric Johnson, the 60th Mayor-Elect of Dallas, epitomizes exactly what the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs is all about.

The WWS is proud of Mayor-Elect Johnson, and have tracked his career with pride. From his time with the...

Reunions are a big deal at Princeton. And it’s always fun to see each graduating class experience them for the first time. For those of us lucky to be affiliated with the Woodrow Wilson School over a longer time horizon, we’re delighted to welcome so many graduate alumni back to campus each year for the WWS reception, which ran from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. today. With welcome remarks from the Dean, and a lot of school spirit – and orange! – it’s...

Hi from a warming Central New Jersey. We just wrapped our latest round of admissions, having turned to the waitlist for a very small number of candidates this year. I love my job because of all the amazing people that comprise the broader WWS community. (Not to mention, our students are second to none!) But it is also incredibly hard at times, not least because there are so many deserving, well-qualified and accomplished applicants for whom we...
