A database of topics taught in MPP and MPA programs
The entries in the database are in the form of normed topics, as specified in the Normed Topic Model.
The major focus to date has been on determining and describing 120 core normed topics, that is, the topics that from our analysis of core competencies and required courses appear to constitute the common core of MPP and MPA curricula.
Many of the links in the database still point to the original Atlas. Those that have been formatted on the new Atlas are listed at the bottom of the left menu bar.
