The MPP is in its 11th year of successfully recruiting and educating policy leaders for the 21st century. The program is designed as a full-time two year degree with all coursework taken in residence on the Corvallis campus. We have an increasingly diverse program—in terms of gender, race and ethnicity, and socio-economic status of students—in addition to the growing presence of international students. The program has grown from 3 students in 2003-04 to 62 students in 2013-14.
