Public Policy (M.P.P.) - Nuclear Engineering (M.S.) Concurrent Degree Program

Government and technology interact more, and with greater consequences, every year.  Whether the issue area is environmental protection, intellectual property (copyright and the internet), health care, water supply, or any of myriad other contexts, government agencies at all levels, non-profit organizations and private industry need people who understand technology on its own terms and also the ways government supports, controls, or directs it.  Because this program is small, each student’s program tends to be customized with the agreement of advisors in both programs.

Basic Requirements

Year 1

  • Completion of the MPP first year core curriculum.
  • Summer Internship 

Year 2

  • Complete required units in nuclear engineering, plus six elective agreeable to both schools.
  • Complete a paper that satisfies the MS Plan I or Plan II requirement, and the MPP APA (Advanced Policy Analysis) requirement
