Interested in public policy? The Cornell Institute for Public Affairs (CIPA) aims to train future policy professionals in a diversity of areas. At CIPA, students gain a solid framework in public policy, while advancing their specific interests with flexible coursework. With a balance of core coursework (dedicated to economic, quantitative, and administrative concepts) and concentration coursework (in areas like Environmental Policy or International Development Studies), CIPA fellows are able to cater their coursework to their unique area of policy interest. To be redirected to the main website for Cornell Institute of Public Affairs, please click here.
