Although optional, the concentrations are “gateways” to selected Research and teaching areas of distinction at UCLA of particular relevance to public policy. Some courses across the concentration areas are offered by Public Policy faculty, some are taught in the departments and formally cross-listed in Public Policy, and still more are available in the top professional Schools and highly ranked Departments in the College of Letters & Science. Visit the web pages of each concentration to find the Public Policy Faculty members who do research in the area, the overall campus course offerings, penitent UCLA research centers, and other links. The MPP Plan of Study shows how concentration courses fit in the curriculum.
Students can also complete an International Policy concentration with a one of the certificates offered through Global Public Affairs at UCLA Luskin.
