Public Policy and Program Evaluation

   
Program Information
Faculty: School of Public Policy and Administration
Degree: Post-diploma
Field of Study: Public Policy Analysis
Description The need for evaluators who are able to work in domestic governments, international development agencies, consulting firms, business and non-profits is growing as pressure to demonstrate policy and program performance and impact is increasing. Carleton’s accredited Public Policy and Program Evaluation diploma prepares students for roles as evaluators and as managers of evaluation. The program prepares students to understand the various approaches and traditions of evaluation, methodologies and techniques within each of these, and to think critically about evaluation use and design. You will better understand where evaluation fits in the broader contexts of public policy, strategic management and accountability and appreciate how to make more effective use of evaluation. Students may apply up to five of the six diploma courses toward application to the MA in Public Administration, thereby reducing its length from 15 courses to 10.
