The University of New Hampshire offers a dual degree program in policy and analytics that provides students with the skills needed to analyze critical societal issues, develop policy solutions, and translate analysis into action. The two degrees, one a Master in Public Policy (MPP) and the other a Master of Science in Analytics, offer students highly marketable credentials in just two years of study.
Students can start the program with either the MPP or the MS Analytics program, while studying content from each program during each year. There is a capstone/Practicum experience during the second year for both paths that demonstrates command of skills from each program.
Students wishing to pursue the MPP/MS Analytics dual degree program must apply for the MPP/MS Analytics dual degree and be accepted separately into each of the two degree programs. Students may choose which program to begin with.
Students choosing to begin their dual degree with MPP coursework (Pathway 1 below) should apply to the dual degree by the MPP application deadline date (June).
Students choosing to begin their dual degree with the MS in Analytics coursework (Pathway 2 below) should apply to the dual degree by the MS Analytics application deadline date (Rolling admissions; Admits begin in October with a deadline date of April 30 ). Students currently enrolled in either program can apply to the second program (by that program’s application deadline) and tuition will be adjusted accordingly. Learn more.
