The Master of Arts in Global Policy (MGP) is a rigorous year-and-a-half program that provides students with breadth of training in the various facets of global policy as well as in-depth training in a chosen functional policy specialization including Environmental Policy, Developmental Policy and International Public Health Policy.

In addition to coursework in their chosen specialization, students complete a set of universal requirements, including core courses on quantitative analysis, international economics, negotiation and diplomacy, and global policy analysis. In their final semester, students take a capstone seminar in which research teams design and carry out an interdisciplinary policy analysis comparable to those performed for a government or nonprofit agency, often for a real-world client.
