Faculty conduct research on topical policy issues, such as professor Hittinger's work on alternative energy.
With a strong placement record, our alumni are business leaders, project managers, head engineers, advocates, decision makers and policy analysts.
Students have many opportunities to network with thought leaders, policy analysts, and policy makers.
Partnerships with other colleges, such as College of Science and College of Engineering, contribute to a faculty and curriculum that are truly interdisciplinary.
Through research opportunities, senior projects, or masters theses, students have the opportunity to consult for local organizations and conduct research.
Co-ops and internships in Washington DC and elsewhere help students apply ideas learned in class to real world public policy issues.
Curricular flexibility provides ample opportunity for students to take classes in other Colleges and Departments at RIT.
