New Courses at SIPA: Military technology, private sector work, and social impact campaigns

SIPA is constantly expanding it’s curricula so that students are equipped with the tools they need to start solving pressing global policy issues. There’s a wide range of areas that SIPA students choose to go into, so here are some new course highlights from this semester. (No need for a TL;DR, these course highlights are just one minute long.)

Working with the Private Sector for Development Outcomes

Military Technology Assessment

The Art of Creating Social Impact Campaigns

New Courses at SIPA: Urban Social Policy & Building Big Renewable Energy Projects

It’s been a busy few weeks for us at admissions. We’ve been speaking with a large number of you about what SIPA can offer, and many of our admitted students will learn just that at our upcoming 2018 Admitted Students’ Day on April 10th. As a reminder, the admissions office will be closed Tuesday for #ASDSIPA2018.

For those who aren’t in New York City, we’re happy to present a glimpse into these new courses at SIPA:

As usual, we encourage you to reach out to us if you have any questions about our innovative courses — and anything else on your mind. We’ll have more in our “New Classes” series soon, and in-person class visits are still available through this month.

We look forward to meeting you on Admitted Students’ Day next week!

Big Questions, Big Ideas @ SIPA

We’re excited to bring to you the first of our new series, “Big Questions, Big Ideas @ SIPA.” Take a peek at some of the most pressing global topics that are being covered here by policymakers, thought leaders, experts, and SIPA faculty. These are ideas you will encounter as a student and down the road as an alum.

Don’t forget our general deadline for SIPA fellowship aid consideration is coming up fast on January 5, 2018. Our final deadline for admissions decisions is February 5, 2018. We’ve wrapped up our recruitment travel but will continue to host virtual and in-person information sessions until the holiday break. Make sure to register for a class visit while you still have time – the last day of class is December 11th. Lastly, check out our new series that covers the different components of the application – What’s in an App – on the admissions blog. Good luck on your application!

Reason No. 1,538 to come to SIPA

You all know we have some pretty amazing faculty and adjuncts at SIPA. But did you know we bring in some pretty cool talent outside of the program? What if I told you those talented people were also Seeples? Well, as Affan Javed, MPA ’16, puts it you can always find policy stars exploring the halls of SIPA’s International Affairs Building. And last week one of our very own, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, MIA ’87, stopped by for a special lecture in former NYC Mayor David Dinkins’s Practicum in Urban Policy course.
