Program Overview

The Master of Public Policy and Administration (MPPA) is a graduate professional degree program that shapes future policymakers, public administrators, and community-based professionals seeking to impact systemic social change.

In the MPPA program, Adler University uniquely infuses its long-standing tradition of a social justice focus with core knowledge and skills in policy development and analysis, program evaluation, management, and politics necessary for work in the public arena including national, state, and local governments, policy research centers, consulting ?rms, community-action groups, and direct-service providers in the US and around the world.

The program requires 36 hours of course work with a minimum of 27 hours of Public Policy and Administration core course work and 9 hours of concentration course work. Over a two-year period, courses are offered with a schedule of classes designed to allow both traditional students and working professionals to complete the degree.

At the end of two years, Adler MPPA students leave with the tools they need to become effective policy makers and administrators and build on leadership and management skills to participate and contribute in the process of creating healthy local and global communities.

Health and Human Rights
As part of the MPPA, students will complete a concentration in Health and Human Rights.

In the Health and Human Rights concentration, students learn how to lead policy and advocacy efforts that foster community health, human rights, and social justice domestically and internationally. This concentration trains policy professionals to work in governmental, nonprofit, or private sectors applying established human rights standards, laws, and treaties within the context of community health. Students focus on broader social, economic, political, and environmental issues in a theoretical and historical context within our practice-based curriculum.
