The Master of Science and Technology Policy is a unique one-year degree program (30 credits) which provides professional education for students seeking advanced public, non-profit, or private sector careers in science and technology policy and related fields in the United States or abroad. Students take two core courses that provide the necessary science and technology policy foundation knowledge and skills. Two additional courses are selected from a list of restricted electives provided by the Program Director. The remaining course credits are selected by the students as electives in their particular area of interest: renewable energy, public health, sustainability, information technology, space science, climate change, etc. A capstone policy workshop in Washington, DC, an internship experience and an Applied Project under the guidance of a faculty mentor allow the students to apply their education in real world settings.

The School for the Future of Innovation in Society administers the degree program.
