UCLA Public Policy Projects

The MPP Program culminates in a mandatory two-quarter seminar dedicated to preparation of a major applied policy project. The objective is to challenge students to conduct a detailed investigation of a real policy problem and to frame the problem in its wider social context. Students are encouraged to grapple with the challenges of policy implementation in the midst of competing and often conflicting social, political, economic and technical interests.
