Master of Public Policy

Students with faculty at UEP

The Master of Public Policy is designed for individuals with at least seven years of significant, relevant professional experience who are interested in expanding their knowledge of public policy within urban, social, and environmental domains — or across these domains, such as programs and policies related to sustainable communities. This degree program offers students the opportunity to strengthen their critical thinking, policy analysis, and communication skills; improve their professional practice in areas such as mediation, land use planning, or financial management; and establish close professional relationships and networks among faculty, affiliated agencies, and other students.

Now, mid-career students can choose to enroll in a full-time program or in a part-time format. The part-time program allows working professionals to work full-time while attending courses during the evenings and weekends, completing their degree in two years.

For more information, download the Master of Public Policy brochure. A GRE score is not required for applications to the mid-career M.P.P. program.

Note that those who are not yet eligible for the M.P.P. should consider UEP's M.A. in Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning or M.S. in Environmental Policy and Planning.

Those who are interested in being considered for the Neighborhood Fellows program must first apply and be admitted to the M.P.P. program. Neighborhood Fellows are selected annually in March.
