Master Public Policy at Hertie School: Course Content

The MPP is an academically demanding degree programme with a hands-on approach, which prepares students to tackle today’s most pressing policy problems.
 

In the first year, MPP students take courses in economics, political science, statistics, public management, and law. They participate in a project course usually taught together with a public policy institution, designed to confront students with the challenges of a real-world project. Between the first and second year of study, students gain professional experience in a full-time internship in a public policy relevant institution.
 

In their second semester, students begin a concentration in either policy analysis or management and organisation. Depending on their chosen concentration, students refine their quantitative and qualitative methods or management competences in the second year of study. They deepen their policy expertise by choosing from a wide range of electives in such areas as climate and energy, civil society, economics and finance, innovation and regulation, as well as security and development.
 

MPP students complete their degree requirements with a master thesis, which applies the knowledge, concepts and tools they have learned to develop a set of policy recommendations for a concrete policy problem. The thesis is developed under the guidance of a supervising faculty member and can be carried out in cooperation with a practice partner.
