Why did you choose the MPP program?

Coming out of my undergraduate studies, I wanted to be a social worker. The more, however, I articulated to myself and to others what I wanted to do within the field of social work – examine programs to determine how they could better do the job or serve the population or engage with the community they were meant to be doing, serving, or engaging – the more I realized I wasn’t necessarily talking about social work. The MPP program at SPPG best suited what I was seeking: classes would examine the theoretical and political context for policymaking while fostering knowledge and skills that would be directly applicable to a position or career on graduation, whether in the public, private, or non-profit sector. The internship component reinforced this impression and had a great deal to do with my decision. The opportunity to practice self-direction and to learn by doing seemed invaluable.
