The Master of Arts in Public Policy & Evaluation (MAPPE) is a joint program offered by the Division of Politics & Economics (DPE) and the Division of Behavioral & Organizational Sciences (DBOS) that combines two highly complementary domains—public policy and evaluation—which are often taught and learned separately. The program places a strong emphasis on the politics of outcome evaluation; you’ll develop an understanding of stakeholder and constituent roles in evaluation, empowerment aspects, and the ethical requirements of a policy analyst and evaluator. The program allows considerable flexibility to construct a degree that builds important skills for a range of careers, especially in nonprofit or governmental settings. -
