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

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...
