Graduate Public Policy Certificates

Maybe you’re not ready to enter a Master’s program. The Department of Public Policy also offers three graduate certificates. You are not required to take the GRE to enroll, and you can earn a certificate with just four courses.

Successful completion of any of these certificates waives the GRE requirement for admission to the MPP degree program. In addition, each certificate class with a grade of 3.0 (B average) or higher will be accepted into the MPP program.
