- In-Class Case Studies — Professors integrate case studies, small group exercises, and applied projects into the classroom to add a real-world perspective to the coursework.
- Research — Students collaborate with faculty on groundbreaking, use-inspired research in class and in our research centers—The Kitty and Michael Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy, The Social Impact Lab, and the Boston Area Research Initiative.
- Capstone — Students must complete a capstone, a semester-long project where student teams work in partnership with local, state, or federal agencies or nonprofit institutions to assess a problem, produce a thorough policy analysis, and recommend solutions to the client.
- Opportunities Abroad — Students can participate in a one-semester exchange program with the University of Amsterdam’s Urban Studies Research master’s program or KU Leuven. This is an academic, research-oriented program that will be complementary to our professionally focused Master of Public Policy program.
