Gender and Cultural Studies + Public Policy

The dual degree program in Gender and Cultural Studies (MA) + Public Policy (MPP) is designed for students who would like to combine the pragmatic approach of Public Policy with the broader, creative insight of theory.

Blend theory with practice to create social change

This program is ideal preparation for those with a particular interest in issues of diversity, race, gender, class, ethnicity and sexual orientation in public policy. Students must apply and be admitted to both programs.

Students will be enrolled in both programs simultaneously and work with an advisor from each program to tailor their studies to meet their needs and interests.
