MA in International Development & Policy at University of Chicago: Apply by April 28: Expired


The Harris Public Policy School at The University of Chicago invites applications from meritorious candidates for admission into MA in International Development & Policy.

Applications are invited for people from around the world who are already making a difference – in civil society, in government, in the private sector, or as entrepreneurs, who are ready to take the next step forward in expanding their horizons and advancing their work, and who have a commitment to giving back to their community.


We’re seeking emerging leaders from around the world who meet the following criteria:

  • Significant work experience (typically 3-5 years or more) and professional accomplishments with a clear trajectory of increasing impact.
  • Demonstrated record of community service or working for the public good, either through a full-time professional role or significant engagement outside of primary employment.
  • Possess a clear focus on a global challenge or policy issue.
  • A clear commitment to return to and reinvest your new skills in your community after the program concludes.

While no specific experience is required for our degree programs, students with a strong liberal arts background and sound quantitative and analytical skills will be best prepared to thrive at Harris Public Policy.

The GRE is not required, but you have the option of submitting a GRE or other test scores (e.g., GMAT or LSAT) as supplemental material. Scores from either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) are required for international students.
