Thank you for your interest in the Goldman School of Public Policy.
GSPP offers three degree programs: Master of Public Policy (MPP), Master of Public Affairs (MPA) and the Doctoral Program (PhD). A comparison of the MPP versus the MPA can be found at Choosing the Right Degree for You.
Admission to the Goldman School is highly selective, determined by a committee of faculty, administrators and current students who evaluate the applicant’s academic preparation and demonstrated commitment to public service. Along with the applicant’s individual qualifications, the committee endeavors to assemble a class that reflects a diversity of student backgrounds and experience; this diversity is a distinctive of a Goldman School education and, we believe, essential to strong public policy training. Interviews are not part of the application review process.
