Built upon the strong foundation of one of the nation’s top public universities, the Batten School combines rigorous training in policy analysis with a unique emphasis on the acquisition of leadership skills. Members of the research faculty have backgrounds in economics, psychology, political science, and public administration and policy. The school is further enriched by professors of practice who bring real-world policymaking expertise to the classroom. The Batten School currently offers an MPP degree and an undergraduate major and minor in public policy and leadership, as well as multiple dual degree programs with other UVA units.

The Batten School is a dynamic cross-disciplinary school offering highly competitive teaching loads, salaries, and research support. The Batten School is committed to faculty growth and is conducting multiple searches this year. While the primary appointment is in the Batten School, a joint/courtesy appointment could be possible in the Department of Economics or other UVA schools and departments, depending on the candidate’s interests and qualifications.
