Leveraging our West Coast location and UC San Diego’s renowned programs in science and technology, GPS develops new analytic tools with practical applications, while rigorously training the next generation of global leaders. We embed in our curriculum advanced methods to design, test, evaluate and refine solutions for global societies in the 21st century, teach about the great questions facing the world and prepare our students to identify which results are more likely to work. Our alumni have assumed positions of leadership in businesses, governments
This fall we welcome our third class of Master of Public Policy candidates. This new two-year degree prepares students with the skills needed to compare best practices for policymaking in the U.S., Latin America, Asia and beyond. GPS is also proud to offer a new Master of Chinese Economic and Political Affairs two-year degree. Our second class also joined us this fall, and these students will work with UC San Diego’s world-class community of China scholars to investigate in depth the most important issues relating to contemporary China.
Our training requires us to invest in building research and public service partnerships with UC San Diego’s distinguished scholars in the social sciences, science, technology
