Course Requirements (36-39 units)

The graduate program in Public Policy and Administration curriculum consists of four components.


MPPA students must successfully complete two required prerequisites prior to starting the program: government/political science and microeconomics. Completion of the statistics prerequisite is recommended.

ATTENTION: We recently changed our statistics prerequisite from required to recommended.

Sequencing courses is important to a student's success. Our course sequencing page contains two tables showing typical schedules recommended for MPPA students.
