THE ROAD TO THE WHITE HOUSE BEGINS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
Governor John Sununu once quipped that in Iowa they pick corn. In New Hampshire we pick Presidents. That statement, as full of bravado as it is, captures why I live and work as a political scientist in New Hampshire, why I direct the MAPP program, and why so many students have joined us over the years. You see, New England College has emerged as one of the regular stops for all of the Presidential candidates and is now very much a part of the First in the Nation Primary tour. The education we provide is a blend of scholarship and practice applying what we read to the very real issues these candidates and policymakers are considering daily. Our hope is that the laboratory of democracy that is New Hampshire along with the education you will receive in our MAPP program will lead to your development as a citizen scholar practitioner.

The Master of Arts in Public Policy -(MAPP) program prepares you to gain an understanding of the intellectual foundations for key public policy discussions and how the outcomes affect change in the political process. As a "hot spot" on the campaign trail for politicians, New England College offers a Public Policy program for those with a keen desire to make a difference. You will learn how citizens and governments interact, and you'll develop the skill set to become a participant who can influence government at the National, State, and Local levels.
