The Department of Economics, College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS), and Hobby School of Public Affairs offer a graduate dual degree in MA Applied Economics (MAAE) and Master of Public Policy (MPP) to prepare students for careers in public policy. This program combines theoretical and analytical framework for designing/evaluating public policies offered by the MAAE with theories/strategies to develop public policies and understand political processes through which policies are implemented offered by the MPP. Through this dual program, students earn both an MA and MPP with fewer semester hours than it would take to earn each degree independently.

Admission Requirements


Participation in the dual MA Applied Economics/MPP program requires separate applications to and acceptance by each of the participating schools within a calendar year. Applicants must meet admission requirements of both programs. Admission to one has no official bearing on admission to the other.
