Master of Arts in Global Public Policy (MAGPP)

Suffolk’s Master of Arts in Global Public Policy program is specifically focused on the pragmatics of international regulation, institutions, and governance, preparing you to make a difference on a global scale.

If your interests lie in policy development and analysis spanning cultures and geographic borders, this degree will give you the skills you need to succeed in these areas of focus:

  • International political economy
  • International organizations
  • Human rights
  • Politics of the Americas, East Asia, Europe, or the Middle East

From a solid base of academic knowledge in areas like political economy and international relations theory, you will build practical skills that are vital to success for a policy professional, including data and policy analysis, and writing. A required internship will give you experience in an international organization based within or outside the United States, further strengthening your skills and providing valuable networking contacts for your career.

This program’s real-world focus means that you will graduate ready to take up professional roles that make a real difference in institutions such as the United Nations, World Health Organization, World Trade Organization, Oxfam, Amnesty International, and other international development and human rights organizations.
