MPP and MPA Programs

University of Chicago, Harris School of Public Policy (Harris) 

Program Comparison Highlights

Institutional Structure: Chicago's MPP is delivered through the Harris School of Public Policy, one of 6 professional schools within the University of Chicago, each with the power to hire and promote faculty. The School offers a doctorate in public policy, a two-year MPP, a one-year AM, and five other specialist Master's degrees. 

Curriculum Design:  The University of Chicago uses a quarter system. Using our 8/9 conversion factor and assigning a two-semester-course equivalent for the required internship, Chicago graduation requirement is 18 one-semester courses. Our PEACO calculations below suggest that typical MPP students take about 75% of their course work in policy-oriented subjects and 25% in management-oriented subjects. Typical students take about 27% of their course work in subjects with high math/economics content. This places the Chicago MPP in the "high course requirement, policy-oriented, higher math/economics content" curricular type, along with such programs as the Berkeley MPP and the Harvard MPP (see MPP/MPA Curricular Types). Relative to all other MPP/MPA programs, the Chicago MPP program offers a very high number of core and elective courses (about 265 courses) with a very high proportion of courses taught within the school. The competency gap analysis below suggests that a Chicago Harris student taking the required courses and a random selection of listed electives would, on average, graduate with approximately 26 course-weeks of shortfall in the core-competency subject matter identified in MPP/MPA Core Competencies, including shortfalls of 6 course-weeks in Leadership Skills and in Ethics, Rights and Accountability, 4 course-weeks in macroeconomic policy, and 3 course-weeks in each in Human Resource Management.

Professional Program Features: The Chicago MPP makes extensive use of current and former practitioners in its teaching. There are extensive professional development modules, career counselling services and co-curricular activities with a professional focus. There is a vast array of resources on the site of the Career Development Office (at http://harris.uchicago.edu/career-development), including resources for graduates. (Indeed, the site provides public access to a series of Career Development Guides, such as Effective Interviewing (at http://harris.uchicago.edu/sites/default/files/Effective%20Interviewing%20111914.pdf) and Evaluating and Negotiating a Job Offer (at http://harris.uchicago.edu/sites/default/files/Evaluating%20and%20Negotiating%20a%20Job%20Offer%20010715.pdf).) The Harris School has 9 research centres (listed at http://harris.uchicago.edu/research): Human Potential and Public Policy; Data Science and Public Policy; Health Policy; Municipal Finance; Cultural Policy; Energy Policy; and Childhood Development.

Program Summary

Website: http://harrisschool.uchicago.edu

University: University of Chicago

Location: Chicago, IL

Degree: Master of Public Policy

Marketing Approach: "The Harris School’s mission is to create and disseminate knowledge that will improve the quality of public policies around the globe and to educate the next generation of public policy leaders by equipping them with the knowledge and skills they will need to make better policy decisions." (At http://harrisschool.uchicago.edu/about-chicago-harris, accessed 6 March 2014)

Degrees Awarded per Year: 160. Estimate based on 2014 Class Profile of 161 Master's students at http://harris.uchicago.edu/admissions-and-aid, accessed 19 May 2015. It is not certain from this reference if the 161 refers to MPP only or to all Master's degrees.

Academic Unit within University: The Harris School of Public Policy is a one of six professional schools within the university.

Related Academic Units and Degrees: Chicago’s graduate programs are listed, by graduate unit, at http://www.uchicago.edu/academics/departments/. The Harris School offers a doctorate in public policy; four 2-year Master's degrees (Master of Public Policy (MPP); Master of Science in Computational Analysis and Public Policy (MSCAPP); Master of Science in Environmental Science and Policy (MSESP); Master of Arts in Public Policy and International Relations (AM/MA)); and three shorter programs: a one-year Master of Arts in Public Policy (AM); a one-year Master of Arts in Public Policy with a Certificate in Data Analytics (MACDA), a 15-month Master of Arts in Public Policy with Certificate in Research Methods (MACRM. 

Posted Fees: $48,362 ($44,088 tuition plus $1,014 student life fee plus $3,200 health insurance, plus $60 transcript fee) per year for 2015-16 (at http://harris.uchicago.edu/admissions-and-aid/tuition-and-expenses, accessed 17 May 2015).

MPP Degree Requirements

Summary: Comprised of a core curriculum, distribution requirements, areas of focus and electives, the two-year MPP is a professional degree program designed for students who wish to gain a thorough training in public policy skills and issues.

To complete the MPP requirements, students in the two-year program must:

  • Successfully complete 18 courses (six quarters of residency) with quality grades
  • Take a minimum of twelve courses in the Harris School
  • Earn at least a C- in all core courses and distributional requirements
  • Have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.7 at the time of graduation

Duration: 2 years (six quarters of full-time study).

Academic Prerequisite: The University of Chicago seeks candidates with the academic preparation, intellectual ability, experience, and motivation to undertake a rigorous program in public policy. While no specific experience is required, students with a strong liberal arts background and sound quantitative and analytical skills will be best prepared for the program. The Committee on Admission and Aid evaluates all official transcripts of academic work, personal essays, letters of recommendation, extracurricular activities and community service, performance on standardized tests, and special factors brought to its attention. The Committee considers each application on the basis of all materials submitted and does not automatically eliminate applications based on grade point averages or test scores.

Number of One-Semester-Equivalent Courses Required for Completion: 15.8 (18 quarter-based courses = 13.8 one-semester-equivalents, plus a required 10-week internship, counted as 2 one-semester-course equivalents) 

Note 1: Chicago uses a quarter rather than a semester system. We are using the an equivalency of one 4-credit hour Chicago Harris courses = 8/9 one-semester course equivalents (given that a full Chicago Harris course load appears to be 3 4-credit courses in each of 3 quarters each year and a full course load in semestered systems is typically 4 courses in each of two semesters per year). 

Number of Required Courses: 9 required quarter-based core courses (including the required 10-week internship, counted as 2 course equivalents) plus 3 required distribution courses 

Note 2. In addition to the required courses, the MPP has distribution requirements intended to provide students with a broad background in policy analysis, and are fulfilled by taking at least one course in three of the following five areas: economics, statistics and decision theory, political economy, political institutions, and management or organizational theory.

Number of Electives Typically Taken (difference between above two entries): 8 quarter-based courses (not including the 3 distribution requirement courses)

Number of Courses Offered within Program: 265 one-quarter courses

Comprehensive Examination: No

Thesis Required: No

Internship Required: Yes, most group internship opportunities accommodate three to four students and typically last ten weeks during the summer, during which time students are paid stipends from Chicago Harris and participating agencies.

International Study Required: No but cooperative programs available with Tel Aviv University, University Chile, and Yonsei University.

Co-curricular Activities Supportive to Degree

Professional Development and Career Support: The Harris School has a Career Development Office.

Student-run Journal: The Chicago Policy Review http://harrisschool.uchicago.edu/applied-experience/student-organizations/cpr

Applied Projects: Several, see http://harrisschool.uchicago.edu/applied-experience/student-organizations

Pro Bono Consulting: Not referenced on website.
