The MPPA program gives leaders formation in contemporary public policy and the Catholic intellectual tradition so they can be transformative in a variety of settings: non-profits, government service, and the corporate world.

Uncertain political times present opportunities. Good leaders know how to make the most of them. From classical texts to guest teaching by leading contemporary authors, UST’s MPPA program equips graduates to step into leadership with vision and skill.

UST’s MPPA program may be completed within one year and is offered 100% online with highly flexible scheduling and optional in-person classes available.
