MPA/MAGPP Dual Degree

The MPA/MAGPP dual-degree program will allow you to master the pragmatics of international regulation, institutions, and governance, while developing your political abilities and refining your leadership skills.


This powerful combination of degrees will make you uncommonly well-qualified to make a practical difference on an international level. The global public policy curriculum will give you grounding in fields like political economy and international relations, while the public administration program will give you the hands-on tools to be a leader at all levels of government. The result of this unique combination? You leave with the skills you need to create, analyze, and implement policy.

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.
