The Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University is named after former Duke president and Governor of North Carolina Terry Sanford, who established the university's Institute for Policy Sciences and Public Affairs in 1971 as an interdisciplinary program geared toward training future leaders. When the School's current building on Duke's West Campus opened in 1994, the structure was named—and the Institute renamed—in honor of Sanford. The Sanford School offers bachelor's, master's, and doctoral programs in Public Policy.

A second building, named for principal benefactor David Rubenstein, opened in August 2005. The building houses several of the school's centers including the Duke Center for Child and Family Policy and the Duke Center for International Development. Rubenstein Hall had its formal dedication, which included a speech by former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell on November 4, 2005.

The Institute officially became Duke's tenth school on July 1, 2009, when it was renamed the Sanford School of Public Policy.[1] The current dean of the Sanford School is Judith Kelley.[2]

(Music) This is really a much more interactive environment. We bring undergraduates from Duke to Washington for a semester of study and an internship. The program is great because it allows students to bring life to some of the principles and concepts that they learned their courses. And they also do a 28-hour-per-week internship in agencies of the federal government: Congressional offices, lobbying firms, nonprofit organizations.... And network with our mighty alumni base here in Washington. The competencies you learn the Duke program are incredible for work in Washington, and the network of Sanford grads in DC is amazing. I've often actually worked with the current crop of policy students. It gives you the set of skills that you need to have to do these jobs for real in Washington. Duke Sanford does have a very good presence in Washington both through the alumni of the University and the networking opportunities that those sort of give you. To be able to apply what you are learning and to work in an environment in a government agency, in a think tank, in a non-profit it gives you, I think, a leg up as you sort of think about what you want to do professionally after you graduate. It's great to learn in the classroom especially because we have a lot of the practitioners and former practitioners of politics and policy at Sanford but it's also great to see those leaders in action. Being here shows you frontline you know what I'm gonna be doing after graduation and it makes me really excited to see it firsthand and hear from these people. These amazing, amazing people with this wealth of experience. They're able to essentially teach classes in a way that a professor really can't. Where better to get that experience and see firsthand what I'm going to do one day than to be here in Washington DC?


Academic programs


Sanford offers an undergraduate major in Public Policy Studies. The undergraduate program was slightly altered starting with the class of 2009. The department also recently instituted several "pathways", or groups of classes focused on one aspect of public policy. One aspect of the program that is unique among Duke's undergraduate majors is the requirement of a public policy-related summer internship.

The Institute also offers two undergraduate certificates: the Health Policy Certificate and the Policy Journalism and Media Studies Certificate.

Sanford also runs a study-abroad program at the University of Glasgow in Scotland. One notable aspect of the fall semester program is a four-day tour of London and its important cultural and political institutions and meetings with members of Parliament.


At the graduate level, the School currently offers Master of Public Policy and Master of International Development Policy[3] degrees.

The program offers graduate level concentrations[4] in three major areas: Global Policy, Social Policy, and Health Policy.

The Ph.D program started in the fall of 2007.
