Overview

With a focus on the acts of government rather than the practice or theory of government, the Hatfield School's cutting edge program is designed to meet the growing demand for public policy professionals in the public, non-profit, and private sectors. Nationwide, demand for graduates in public policy has been growing in response to the need for analysts and leaders who can operate within complex policy environments. MPP graduates in the U.S. have found employment in a variety of sectors: in 2011-12, 30% worked for the federal government, 24% for non-profits, 22% for the private sector, and 17% for state and local governments as well as international governments and institutions. The Master of Public Policy (MPP) is designed as a two-year full time or three to four-year part-time masters program. Students will undertake training in core competencies in policy analysis and leadership as well as specialize in a policy area. A summative project and a professional development plan will round out the educational experience.

Programme Structure

Candidates seeking to take their careers in public policy-related fields to the next level are encouraged to contact MPP Committee Chair, Professor Bruce Gilley (gilleyb@pdx.edu) for further information or to schedule a campus visit.
