Dual Degree: Master of Public Policy & Administration and Master of Education in Higher Education
The MPPA/M.Ed. dual degree program is designed for students interested in a range of policy issues that affect higher and postsecondary education, such as state governance and coordination, financial aid funding, and affirmative action in admissions and hiring. Graduates will be ready for research, policy analysis and management positions in federal and state governmental agencies, consulting organizations, education research groups and nonprofit organizations working on education issues.
Students enrolled in dual degree programs may begin their studies in either program. It is best to complete a full year in one program before beginning the second program. During the second year students will fulfill the core requirements of the other program. Students will fulfill the remaining requirements of both programs in the third year of study.
