Kean University is home to the John S. Watson Institute for Urban Policy and Research and offers several academic programs for students interested in public administration and related careers.
With ongoing changes to health care, government and nonprofit fields, there is a constant demand for people who can play a direct role in creating effective public policies. At Kean, we offer three different master's degrees in public administration that prepare graduates for managerial roles in government, health care and nonprofit sectors.
The Watson Institute is "the think and do tank for public policy." The institute is dedicated to deepening the analysis around critical public policy challenges and broadening the range of policy ideas, perspectives and options available.
