Master's Degree in Public Policy

The Women and Public Policy Program of Harvard Kennedy School closes gender gaps in economic opportunity, political participation, health and education by creating knowledge, training leaders and informing public policy and organizational practices. Our research provides evidence-based insights on the role of gender in shaping economic, political and social opportunities available to individuals. We identify successful interventions and measure their impact on women, men, and society, then share recommendations on what policies, organizational practices and leadership techniques help close involuntary gaps.

Bachelor of Arts

Pomona College offers curriculum in the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. It was founded in 1887 and it is headquartered in Claremont, CA
