Policy Related Electives

​​At Jacksonville University, we recognize that diverse elective coursework helps students develop expertise in their field of interest. That's why 12 credits of our MPP curriculum are elective. 

The Institute brings in subject matter experts to offer policy-based electives in education policy, strategic communication, political campaigning, and polling .

In addition, all MPP students take at least one policy oriented law school elective. Offered through a unique partnership between Jacksonville University and Florida Coastal School of Law, MPP students take at least one course at the law school during their last year of MPP study. Students must receive a grade of “C” or better for credit toward the MPP degree, but the law school grade will not be counted in the MPP GPA.
