A New Education for a New Future
Tulane’s City + Culture + Community PhD Program (CCC) is a highly selective, cross-disciplinary, full-time, and individualized doctoral program. Founded in 2011, CCC admits, on average, six students each academic year who enter one of three tracks: Social Work-CCC, Sociology-CCC, or Urban Studies-CCC. Our students come to the program with interests in contemporary social issues, public policy, social welfare, identity politics, urbanization and urban inequality, environmental sustainability and injustice, and racial equity and social justice.
CCC students receive a tuition waiver and stipend funding (currently $25,000 per year) for five years, providing they meet all program requirements. The program is organized to build strong cohort identity and to link students with engaged Tulane faculty, providing a supportive, stimulating academic environment for creative doctoral study.
