The Department of Public Policy supports several graduate programs in policy-related fields. These include a set of graduate certificate programs in specific areas of public policy, as well as a Master of Public Policy (MPP). In addition, the Department offers courses at the undergraduate level to help expose students to the field of public policy and offers selected undergraduates within the University of Massachuetts Dartmouth community the opportunity to enroll in an accelerated BA/MPP Program, where graduate courses are taken in the junior and senior years of the student's undergraduate career that count towards both their undergraduate degree and a Master of Public Policy degree.
These programs vary in their breadth and depth, allowing for students to obtain preliminary exposure or fully immersing themselves in the subject matters in which the Department specializes. Please explore the following links for more detailed information on our programs.
