Enhance your community through public service

The Master of Public Policy (MPP) and Master of Public Administration (MPA) at McGeorge School of Law are the first programs of their kind to be offered by a law school. The MPP and MPA programs are designed to prepare students to lead successful careers in public service.

We provide rigorous policy and leadership education that gives students the knowledge and skills to address complex social issues. With our focus on the interconnections of law, policy, management, and leadership, students gain a deep understanding for statutory interpretation and regulatory processes critical to modern governance. In addition to their degree, students can pursue interdisciplinary concentrations in Environmental & Water Policy, Capital Policy Making, Public and Non-profit Leadership, or Policy Change, Institutional Reform, and Sustainability (MPA only). We offer both part-time and full-time program schedules, and classes are scheduled on evenings and weekends to accommodate working professionals.

By providing students comprehensive curriculum with a schedule that is flexible to fit their needs, graduates are equipped to positively impact communities in a variety of public, private, and nonprofit systems. Study at McGeorge – in California’s Capital City – where students can analyze, observe, and engage in today’s critical issues.

McGeorge School of Law participated in Mock Legislative Hearings in the California State Capitol as part of the California Lobbying & Politics course taught by Rex Frazier '00.
