The mission of the Master of Public Policy program is to train practitioners in public policy to affect change and promote innovative solutions to the most critical issues facing society.
We achieve that mission through a strong curriculum that helps students develop analytic strengths in politics, economics, and quantitative analysis. Students are taught how to apply these skills to be successful in our rapidly changing, globalizing world. Finally, students engage clients directly though the Policy Analysis Practicum.
