Batten School's Fall Accelerated MPP Open House

The Batten School has reinvented the Master of Public Policy, creating a new approach to developing the next generation of public leaders. Our Accelerated Master of Public Policy allows current UVA undergraduates from any major outside of Batten to earn both a bachelor’s degree and Master of Public Policy in a total of five years of coursework. If you’re interested in leading the world to positive, lasting change, join us on Saturday, September 24, for our 2022 Fall Accelerated MPP Open House. This year’s agenda includes sessions with students, faculty, and alumni, and a mock class!


If you are interested in the two-year postgraduate MPP program for individuals who will have a baccalaureate degree by May 2023, please click here to register for the Open House.
