Public PolicyAddress important public problems in order to make our society better
The Master of Public Policy (MPP) degree is right for you if you seek an analytical career that requires you to be able to judge policies and programs, plan and evaluate alternatives, and implement changes.
BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION
The MPP program provides top caliber instruction in policy analysis and program evaluation. Our focus is on providing you with the rigorous analytic and quantitative skills you need to assess policies and to evaluate programs.
The program is centered on analysis of real-world problems and the policies and programs that address them. A hallmark of our program is its focus on combining theory and practice so that you can thrive in a professional workplace. MPP students are prepared to pursue a wide variety of careers in the public, private and nonprofit sectors and work in positions such as policy analysts, research associates, program analysts and finance/budget analysts.
The 43 credit MPP program can typically be completed in two years of full-time study. The MPP program will provide you with high quality instruction in quantitative methods, policy analysis, policy development, and program evaluation. Learn more about MPP.
If you are a current UConn undergraduate and have an interest in gaining the skills to work in public policy or management, the Fast-Track program could be an excellent match for you.
