JD/MPP Joint Degree Specializations

Students will choose an area of special interest for their second year and take one course as in introduction to the field at the end of their first year and before their summer internship. Specialization courses will be offered in:

  • American Policy and Politics
  • Applied Economic Policy
  • International Relations and National Security
  • Public Policy and Dispute Resolution
  • State and Local Policy

The International Relations specialty may focus more specifically on one area such as Latin America, the Middle East, or the Pacific Basin depending on interest among the current student cohort.

Continuous scrutiny and development of the program may result in adjustments in the content, sequencing, and coverage of courses in the required curriculum during future academic years.
