Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a BA in psychology and sociology. I have only recently begun to think about getting my MPP and would like to explore the idea further. I guess I am used to psychology where there are tons of books and guides to grad school, careers, etc. Are there are any good books or sites where I can read more about this degree, what I can do with it, applying to programs, what programs are like, etc.? I don't know much yet.

Thanks!

These aren't exhaustive lists but it's enough to get you started

One of my main resources I used when I started searching was the Peace Corps' Fellows/USA website: http://www.peacecorp...s.participating. If you're not a former or current volunteer then obviously the fellowships won't apply to you but it was a good jumping off point seeing as many of the participating programs are MPP/MPA programs.

There are tons of information on this forum so you just got to dive in!
