The Capstone Experience

College of Public Policy's Capstone Project is a one-of-a-kind, experiential project where students work under the supervision of a faculty mentor to examine and find innovative solutions to current issues in the field of public policy. Learn more about how the project contributes to our students' professional development and educational journey.


    Stay up-to-date with all our current events.

Our aim is for CPP to evolve as a center for discussion on policy issues and policy research.

We have just embarked on our unique and exciting journey and as a ‘start-up’, we are charged with energy and open to innovative ideas and experimentation. To help us in our mission of building the institution’s research capacity and engaging meaningfully with Qatar, the region, and the global community, we are joined by outstanding faculty and a diverse and engaged student body.
