Public Policy (MPP)

Policy class: professor and students

RESPOND EFFECTIVELY TO COMPLEX ISSUES

The Master of Public Policy program is a professional, interdisciplinary degree designed to provide students with a combination of skills. Policy decisions are increasingly becoming more complex, whether these decisions are being made by a government, a non-profit, or a for-profit entity. Our students learn to respond effectively to these issues through coursework in the political and social aspects of public policy as well as in the appropriate methods of policy analysis and evaluation. MPP students engage in research that develops substantive knowledge about numerous policy areas, and our graduates are prepared for careers in a wide variety of public fields.
