Key Features

The Public Policy - Accelerated Master's Program program from University of Arizona will enable academically talented University of Arizona undergraduates to complete their Bachelors (in CJS, POL, or PMPC) and the Master of Public Policy (MPP) in as little as five years of study beginning with their freshman year as an undergraduate. 

The Master of Public Policy (MPP) is a policy-focused degree program that provides students with the analytical skills necessary to address important regional policy concerns like border security, environmental sustainability and natural resource policy. By focusing on regional policy issues, the program prepares students to lead the way in formative policy analysis that will directly affect their community and state.

This MPP program prepares students to work in several different areas of the public sector, such as federal, state, and local government agencies, nonprofit agencies, as well as private consulting firms as researchers and analysts. MPP programs place an emphasis on analyzing policy, creating policy, and solving existing policy problems using quantitative and qualitative data. Earning an MPP degree at the University of Arizona prepares students to start or continue public and private sector work with a better understanding of policy and policy development. Because of the academic rigor of the program, this can also prepare students to continue on to certain PhD programs.
