Program Description:

Whether you’re seeking a dynamic career in public service or a bridge to law school, Monmouth’s 30-credit Master of Arts in Public Policy program will provide you with a strong theoretical foundation and a wide array of practical and marketable skills.

You’ll develop your problem solving skills, the ability to design and manage projects, and the proficiency to manipulate and present quantitative and qualitative information – and you’ll be equipped for grant writing, program evaluation, program implementation, and report preparation and presentation. Choose from an MA in Public Policy comprehensive exam or thesis track to showcase your conceptual, methodological, and application strengths.

The MA in Public Policy program provides flexibility to students by offering hybrid courses, which consist of in-class sessions interspersed with online classes on alternate weeks. The online component is asynchronous, allowing students to participate when it is most convenient for them.

Events are offered for students to socialize, network, and further develop their expertise in a policy area. Students are required to attend program-sponsored graduate colloquiums, are invited to on-campus conferences, and can attend social gatherings such as campus sporting events.
