BA/MPP Accelerated Master's Degree Program
Minimum of 26 semester course credits and general BA requirements
The Mills College BA/MPP Program allows majors in almost any field to earn both a BA and an MPP in a total of five years. All requirements for the BA degree are completed during the first four years, and during this time, students take a set of foundation courses that prepare them for the one-year accelerated Master of Public Policy (MPP) Program.
PEPL majors, public policy minors, and majors in other fields are eligible to apply for the BA/MPP Program. Mills undergraduate students interested in pursuing the BA/MPP should consult with the Public Policy Program Director two years prior to their bachelor's degree graduation date in order to learn about application requirements and establish a course plan.
