fbpx PhD in Political Economy & Government | Harvard Kennedy School

The PhD in Political Economy & Government (PEG) has merged with the PhD program in Public Policy (PPOL). Prospective students interested in focusing on an economics or political science perspective of political economy should apply for one of four PPOL tracks: Economics; Judgment and Decision Making; Politics and Institutions (Political Science); and Science, Technology, and Policy Studies.

The Kennedy School will continue to fully fund and support all current PEG students until they have completed the program and graduated. However, going forward, prospective students will no longer be able to apply to or be admitted to the PEG program.
