Master of Arts in Public Policy
The Online Master of Arts of Public Policy (MAPP) program from New England College will prepare you for future opportunities in government, non-profit organizations, or the political process itself. The program concentrates on the intersection between abstract policy and real world politics. You will gain an understanding of the intellectual foundations for key public policy discussions and how the outcomes affect change in the political process. You will also gain analytical and advocacy skills and will be prepared for advancing your career in the public, private, and non-profit sectors. There are four core competencies that you, as a graduate of the MAPP program, will take away from the program: 1. A clear understanding of the origins of American political institutions, as well as a foundation in ethics and leadership; 2. A strong understanding of the key governmental institutions that formulate and implement public policy in our society, including Congress, the Judiciary, the Presidency and state and local governments; 3. An in-depth grasp of the political process in America, including the mechanics of campaigns, elections, campaign finance and the media; 4. An ability to effectively analyze public policy issues, including basic economic analysis, as well as the ability to present arguments persuasively and logically, and to communicate clearly, correctly and convincingly in writing and speech.
