MPA/MAAP Dual Degree

The MPA/MA in Applied Policy dual-degree program will allow you to develop your political abilities while refining your leadership skills. This option is particularly useful if your goal is a long-lasting management career in municipal, state, or federal government.

With this powerful pair of degrees, you will master the intricacies of public administration in a NASPAA-accredited program in the Sawyer Business School, focusing on health policy, human resources, nonprofit management, or local, state, or federal government. In our College of Arts & Sciences, you will engage the pragmatics of the political world, including legislation, lobbying, writing, and data analysis. All of it will set you up for success in roles such as municipal manager, public service executive, legislator, or cabinet-level official.

A required internship will further strengthen your skills and provide valuable networking contacts for your career.
