Our Masters program has a very diverse student body, though the students share a strong analytical background. Students with analytically oriented undergraduate degrees in the sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities have completed our Masters successfully and received the MS in Public Policy. Therefore, we encourage applicants who have completed a BS degree or equivalent in any field and have an interest in the public policy emphases of our school to apply.
Candidates for admission must take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). In addition, international students must provide official TOEFL score of at least 600 on the paper test or 250 on the computer-based test, and certified proof of financial support. An introductory statistics course is a prerequisite for coursework in the masters degree.
The admission process is rigorous. It takes into account all the documents in the application that are relevant to the academic potential of the candidate. College grades, GRE scores, references, previous experience and statement of interest are assessed together to determine the quality of the case for admission.
Applications are electronic and are handled through the Georgia Tech Graduate Admissions System. Apply at http://www.grad.gatech.edu/admissions/. Items required for admission (in addition to test scores) are the application form, application fee, official transcripts, biographical statement, statement of interest detailing desired area of public policy study, and three letters of recommendation.
