Our MPA students build the skills to change the world.
The Master of Public Affairs (MPA) at the Watson Institute is an exciting one-year program. The program begins in June and concludes the following May. Students will develop the analytic, communication, and strategic leadership skills they need to tackle societal challenges.
MPA students can expect a rigorous and well-rounded curriculum, but also the flexibility to ensure they graduate with the knowledge and experience needed to succeed in their careers. Students can elect to pursue the Data-Driven Track, or they create their own, benefiting from our diverse faculty and access to a multitude of Brown graduate offerings.
