Advance your career

Your MPP or MPA degree prepares you for a range of positions in government, nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations, advocacy organizations, and even provides you with the tools to found your own organization. It is an avenue to develop needed competencies in analysis, effective policy and program design, and needed implementation skills to achieve your professional vision.

Additionally, pursuing your MPP or MPA at McGeorge invites you into to a network of policy, public administration, and law students eager to make a mark on the world. As you progress in your career, this network and peer support will prove priceless.
