UCI Master of Public Policy Program
The U.S. continues to confront a changing global economy, find its economic footing, and grapple with an array of societal issues that call for informed and effective policy responses. Now, more than ever, we need skilled and talented professionals capable of participating in the full range of policy activities, including analyzing, developing, implementing, and advocating policy solutions to our most pressing problems.
UC Irvine's public policy program provides training for highly motivated and talented individuals to become leaders at the local, state, national, and international level in the development and management of policies that lead to a more effective public sector, a more productive private sector, and more vibrant communities. Starting in fall 2011, this two-year professional degree program will bring together the expertise of facultyfrom both the School of Social Ecology and School of Social Sciences to educate and mentor students.
