The Online Master of Public Policy (MPP) at Oregon State University (OSU) has been developed for early and mid-career professionals in the public and nonprofit sectors who are interested in moving up in their positions or who are looking to transition from the private sector to a career in public service.  Students can move through the program at their own pace and all coursework is available through OSU Online. 

The online MPP follows the principles of the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA) laid out for an Online MPP program for mid-career professionals in the nonprofit and public sectors.

The Online version of the MPP has the same core coursework requirements, mission, and learning outcomes as the on-campus program. Students can choose between four possible policy concentrations.
