Applied Science

Throughout every major policy field, numerous critical issues can be analyzed and resolved effectively only through applied scientific techniques. The applied science specialization equips students with knowledge and skills that will allow them to probe some of the most vexing issues faced in any of the major policy concentrations offered at SIPA. Curricular offerings in applied science include climate science, ecology, environmental science, and public health. Students will have the opportunity to take advantage of one of SIPA's most distinctive assets: the ability to draw on the world class teaching and research in departments across Columbia University. Students will be required to complete 3 three-credit courses to satisfy the requirements of the Applied Science Specialization.

The applied science specialization requires 9 points, consisting of 3 three-point graduate-level science courses, determined with approval of the Specialization Director.
