The Public Policy Project, completed in PLCY 8127, is undertaken in the student's last term in the M.P.P. program. Students produce an original, full-length policy analysis for a client. Students attend a weekly seminar to report on their progress at each stage in the development of their policy analysis, receive feedback from other seminar participants, and provide advice to other students in the seminar.
