Policy Studies


Discover how to make change happen through the exciting field of public policy! With a focus on social, economic and environmental sustainability, the Policy Studies Program at KPU equips you with the knowledge, insights, and skills to make a difference in your community and beyond.  

During your studies, you will work with sustainability practitioners on community-based projects. Applied Seminars, a Practicum, and CityLab courses provide real-world situations for you to develop applied skills. At the same time, you will learn about sustainability from the perspective of environmental studies, philosophy, political science, psychology and the field of public policy, leading to a strong and integrated skill set for graduates.  

Successful Policy Studies students are looking for a program of study that challenges them to address critical sustainability problems, such as affordable housing, sustainable urbanization, environmental degradation and the climate emergency. POST students develop the critical and ethical thinking skills necessary to successfully engage with key sustainability issues and societal change.
