Master of Public Policy
Economic uncertainty, poverty, low graduation rates and climate change are among the challenges facing the state of New Mexico. Communities across the country face similar challenges.
The Master of Public Policy (MPP) program will train a new generation of analysts who can serve their communities by identifying and championing data-driven policy options.
The applied research, critical thinking, oral presentation and writing skills of MPP graduates will contribute to improved decision-making in local and state government agencies, in Native communities, and in the private and non-profit sectors.
"The MPP program did meet my expectations, but also helped to shape them. Going in I wanted to gain tools and skills to help me understand and work on policy matters. The MPP did this as well as helped give definition to what working in the policy arena means." - 2020 UNM MPP Graduate
