The MA degree in Public Policy brings together political science, economics, statistics, management, and other social science disciplines to shape policies and programs around the globe. Students gain the knowledge, skills, and practical experience to become leaders in the nonprofit, public, or private sector while creating meaningful social change.
Graduates of our program generally pursue careers either as analysts or in public management. They are prepared for careers as policy, research, program or budget analysts in federal, state or local government or in nonprofit or private organizations. They also work as program managers, city or town administrators, or as directors of or managers in nonprofit organizations. Some of our alumni also pursue private-sector careers or public office.
