Policy Memorandum - Master's Capstone

As the capstone project of your MPP experience, the Policy Memorandum integrates the knowledge and skills you will learn in and outside the classroom.

The Policy Memorandum will give you the opportunity to experience firsthand the type of practical and professional work often required of a policy analyst. You will identify and define a real-world policy issue; analyze the issue by conducting research, gathering data and interviewing professionals with opposing views; analyze the costs and benefits of the issue; and recommend courses of action.
