Admission to the School of International and Public Affairs is competitive, based in large part on academic excellence and professional focus. The applicant must have a bachelor’s degree or evidence of equivalent preparation as determined by the director of admissions. Undergraduate work should include courses in economics. At the very least, students should also have taken chemistry and biology at the level taught in high school. We advise those lacking an economics background and a basic understanding of chemistry and biology to make up these deficiencies before entering the program.

Applicants to the MPA in Environmental Science and Policy program are accepted for the summer term that begins in late May/early June.
