The MPAff program is organized so that formal coursework in theory and relevant analytical skills are reinforced with ongoing opportunities for practical application. In order to enroll in the quantitative core sequence, an entering student must have completed either formal undergraduate coursework in calculus and statistics or passed the validation exam. A required internship between the first and second years provides direct contact with the operating realities of government, nonprofits, and advocacy organizations.
