Who Should Apply

The Master of Public Policy (MPP) program is looking for applicants with intellectual curiosity, passion for problem solving and dedication to public service. We are a program designed for those who are not satisfied working with abstractions and who desire to put their quantitative skills and creativity to work in their communities.

While quantitative skills are essential to student success, applicants must also demonstrate the ability to work well with a variety of people and organizations.

Members of underrepresented communities are strongly encouraged to apply.
