The Public Policy curriculum at Temple University is designed to provide students with the technical and analytical skills to be able to develop and assess proposed public policies and evaluate the effectiveness of programs and activities that governments at the federal, state, and local levels undertake. The M.P.P. also develops students’ appreciation for the political and institutional contexts in which issues reach the policy agenda and policies are formulated, adopted, implemented, and evaluated.
Students in the M.P.P. program plan to seek entry-level jobs in government agencies as civil servants or in private and non-profit organizations that work with federal, state, and local governments, or may already have experience in government, private, or non-profit organizations and seek training and credentials to further develop their careers.
