Why MPP

The University of Arizona is excited to announce the new Masters of Public Policy!
A Model in Public Affairs Education

The MPP is a program uniquely qualified to address the policy challenges facing the Southern Arizona region and the nation. Faculty of the School of Government and Public Policy possess considerable expertise in a variety of policy policy areas and are experts in the areas of public management, policy analysis and program evaluation.

The MPP is a policy-focused degree program that will provide 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 will prepare students to lead the way in formative policy analysis that will directly affect their community and state. 

While our Masters of Public Administration Program (MPA) has been a fixture at the UA since 1958, the new MPP program will offer students additional training in microeconomic theory and quantitative analysis, as well as policy-relevant electives. Graduates of the MPP program will be well-equipped with a unique skill set that will strengthen the public sector workforce of Southern Arizona.
