Master of Public Policy Student Research Papers


Oregon State University (OSU) offers the Master of Public Policy (MPP) to graduate students interested in applied public policy, environmental policy, international policy, and rural policy. The program is offered by faculty in the Departments of Economics, Political Science and Sociology. MPP students can also design programs of study with faculty in such colleges as Agricultural Sciences, Education, Forestry, Health and Human Sciences, Liberal Arts, and Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences.

The MPP specifically prepares students for careers in the public, non-profit, and international sectors and offers training for "in-service" students (already employed) desiring professional growth and advancement. The program accepts students with backgrounds in related academic disciplines.

The degree is designed to be a program that emphasizes analytic skills and policy knowledge in accordance with the accrediting body guidelines of the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA).
