Event Type: Open to public

McCormack Graduate School for Policy and Global Studies now offers two options for studying gender and policy! Earn a graduate certificate in one academic year or an MPA with a GLPP track in two (plus one summer). Students in the Gender, Leadership, and Public Policy graduate certificate program can now easily transition to a Masters in Public Administration program with a GLPP track. Upon acceptance into the MPA program, they will be able to apply 15 of the 18 graduate credits they earn in the certificate program toward an MPA (36 credits total). GLPP/WPPP alumnae can also apply for the MPA. Prospective students can also apply directly to the GLPP MPA program.  

At this information session, program directors will address the new track and admission requirements. Alumnae and current and prospective students (for the graduate certificate and/or the MPA) are invited. Come and learn more! A light dinner will be served and there will also be time set aside for networking.
