The online graduate Diploma in Public Policy and Program Evaluation (DPE) prepares you to take on the roles of evaluators and managers of evaluation. Because the DPE is delivered exclusively online, you can complete it while employed without the need to relocate to the National Capital Region.
Each year, the six online courses that compose the DPE are framed around a set of real-world clients and evaluation projects, linking the conceptual with the concrete. The courses provide you with a grounding in quantitative methods and benefit-cost analysis to describe and measure the outcomes of public sector investments and programs.
This program is completed online, starting in the Fall semester, carrying through the summer months, to allow students to complete their program in 16 months while remaining employed.
