Public Policy Administration

UMSL's Master of Public Policy Administration (MPPA) program educates students to become leaders in improving our communities and society and to make informed policy decisions. We use an interdisciplinary approach to prepare students for careers in public policy, public administration, and nonprofit administration.

In carrying out our mission, we embrace and enact these core values (IDEAS):

  • Integrity We promote ethical, deliberate, and transparent decision making
  • Diversity – We promote inclusiveness and respect for a diversity of perspectives
  • Effectiveness We strive to create value in our communities and be good stewards of public and community resources
  • Accountability We strive to recognize and respond to the needs of our varied stakeholders
  • Service We promote the above values in order to exemplify the ideals of public service
