The Ford School MPP degree provides an exceptionally flexible professional education, preparing students for careers in domestic or international affairs across a wide range of policy areas. Our MPP curriculum provides a set of research, analytical, and management skills that are widely transferable across sectors and issue areas, and graduates often move back and forth between the public, private, and nonprofit sectors over the course of their careers. In addition to the rigorous coursework, the Ford School curriculum provides students with hands-on, practical policy experience, in part by requiring a policy-related summer internship to give students the opportunity to develop and enhance their skills in a real-world setting.
