The Sanford School of Public Policy is a leader in advancing Duke University’s mission to place “knowledge at the service of society.” The Sanford School offers an open, interdisciplinary environment where students can build on their diverse backgrounds by engaging in classroom experiences and real-world problem solving.
The school seeks students with passion, purpose, and sharp, analytical minds who want to gain the knowledge and practical skills they need to transform great ideas into workable policies. After becoming Duke’s tenth school in July 2009, Sanford is equipped, now more than ever, to help students make their ambitions a reality.
"Sanford's career services office introduced me to a lot of networking techniques that I wasn’t familiar with before. That’s what made my DC trip so good - they’d taught me about alumni networking and how to use those connections... I got to meet people who were more geared toward my field of interest and take full advantage of that experience."
