Adler University’s Master of Public Policy (MPP) program allows students to channel their passion for public policy and social advocacy, and prepares them to become leaders in the field. Students learn how to effectively use policy to bring about positive social change in the community, with a focus on developing, implementing, and evaluating policy initiatives that promote not only health, but also political, social, and economic justice.
Students also select from four specialized concentrations – Community Health; Human Rights Advocacy; Sustainable Communities; and Criminal Justice – for professional development in the program that fits their passion and career goals.
Graduates can pursue a wide range of career opportunities in public policy, within national, state, and local governments; research centers; consulting firms; community action groups; and NGOs and direct service providers in the United States and around the world.
This program also allows students to add on a Certificate in Substance Abuse Counseling for an additional 12 credits of coursework.
