Course description

In a world grappling with intricate and interconnected governance issues—like democratic backsliding, rising economic inequality, disruptive technologies, climate change, and armed conflict—there's a growing demand for interdisciplinary, skilled, and adaptable professionals. These individuals need not only a deep, analytical understanding of these challenges but also the drive to take action and contribute to responsible governance at local, national, regional, or global levels. If this resonates with you, the Master of Public Policy (MPP) could be your path forward. This program equips you with the tools to tackle these pressing issues head-on. You'll delve into subjects that span economics, political science, and public administration, gaining a comprehensive view of the policy landscape. The MPP program is designed to foster a nuanced understanding of complex problems and to develop practical solutions. It prepares you to make a meaningful impact, whether you're addressing economic disparities, navigating the implications of new technologies, or working on climate policy. Choosing the MPP means committing to a future where you can influence positive change and promote good governance. If you're ready to step up and make a difference, this program offers the knowledge and skills you need to succeed.
