About the Master of Public Policy

The Master of Public Policy (MPP) program trains students to become professional policy analysts for government agencies, non-profit advocacy and research groups, and private firms.  An interdisciplinary curriculum exposes students to policy and research fundamentals, which stress the identification, evaluation and implementation of policy initiatives.  Participation in UNM’s Evaluation Lab gives students hands-on experience.  An ongoing Policy Seminar provides a forum for student collaboration, integration with the local policy community and the inculcation of professional values and norms.
