Highly ranked MPP and MPA programs with online syllabi
Our methodology for determining the MPP/MPA core (see Defining Core) includes reviewing what is taught in the required courses of leading MPP and MPA programs.
We have selected a set of four programs that are highly ranked in the U.S. News and World Report (based on a fall 2015 survey of deans and directors, see http://www.usnews.com/education/best-graduate-schools/articles/public-affairs-schools-methodology, accessed 23 May 2016) and which make available online syllabi for most of their courses.
|University||Since (1)||Pub/Priv||Rank (2)||Size (3)|
|Harvard Kennedy MPP||1936||Private||3||250|
|Michigan Ford MPP||1914||Public||8||110|
|New York Wagner MPA||1938||Private||11||180|
|Wisconsin La Follette MPA||1967||Public||13||44|
Notes: (1) Year of first graduate degree; (2) US News and World Report ranking for Public Affairs, at http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-public-affairs-schools/public-affairs-rankings, accessed 23 May 2016; (3) Estimate from available web information of the number of graduates per year.
Our four reference programs provide a mix of MPP and MPA degrees, of private and public universities, and range in size from an intake of under 50 to over 200. They are all in the top fifteen ranked programs in the United States.
