What policy jobs can I get without an MPP?

I just finished a summer program in public policy, and discovered that while I love the topic, I'm not a big fan of how it is taught in MPP programs. What kind of jobs in public policy can I get without a degree? If I want to do policy advocacy, should I go ahead and pursue the degree? #policy #public-policy #masters-degree #career #job

What can I do to prepare for a career in Public Policy?

I am currently in the social work program at my college, with a minor in political science. There are only 3 classes in public policy available at my school, which I plan to take in the next 3 years. I am interested in macro social work and social policy. What can I do as a college student with limited academic resources to get more experience in public policy and get more involved? #social-work #school #public-policy #government

What is it like working in public policy?

I am getting a degree in social work, but my interest lies in the macro side of the profession. I was looking at getting a degree in public policy after I finish undergrad, but I'm not sure what exact jobs there are in public policy. What skills are taught? Would I work for a company or for a city? If you have any insight, please share! #public-policy #policy #social-work #political-science #graduate-school #mpp

If I am interested in becoming an attorney in public-policy making, would it be to my advantage to take off a semester during the 2020 Presidential Elections to work for a viable candidate so I would have that experience on my resume?

What jobs are there in specifically science advocacy/outreach and public policy?

I want to pursue science, but I also want to contribute to bridging the current science-policy divide we're facing in America. Are there any careers that deal specifically with these issues? AAAS maybe? #science #public-policy #policy #advocacy #career #career-path

What can you do with a degree in political science?

I'm thinking about this major but I'm not sure it's practical. Many politicians are lawyers, so that seems like that's the degree to get if you want to be in politics. And for academic study it seems like having a degree public policy is better (or law). #law #political-science #politics #public-policy #polic
