All students pursuing the dual BA/MPP in Public Policy are required to complete all degree requirements for both the BA and the MPP degrees.

All fifth year MPP students still need to fulfill the requirements of their respective majors. However, up to 14 graduate credits can be cross-counted to fulfill undergraduate requirements. For Public Policy majors, these 14 credits would fulfill Policy major elective requirements. For Political Science, Economics, and Sociology majors, the 14 credits would cross-count to fulfill general undergraduate elective requirements. As compared to the traditional MPP curriculum, fifth year MPP degree students are exempt from taking the graduate version of Analytical and Critical Skills (PPOL 4400), as they will have already taken a similar class as an undergraduate. An additional elective is required in its stead.

One prerequisite course would be required for all non-Public Policy majors before applying. At the time of application, students would need to have taken (or be currently enrolled in) at least one of the following two courses that form a foundation for policy analysis:
