1) What is the degree I would earn if successfully completing Mundus MAPP?
Students successfully completing the program will receive a Master of Arts in Public Policy jointly awarded by the two consortium institutions they attend, as well as a diploma supplement. The MA degree is recognized by the appropriate bodies in Hungary, the Netherlands, Spain, and the UK. In addition, the CEU tracks of the Mundus MAPP program fulfil the same requirements as CEU's Master of Arts degree in Public Policy, registered with the New York State Education Department in the US.
2) Is the course list for 2017-2019 available yet?
The list of courses is not available specifically for 2017-2019. However, an overview of the courses, including all core (mandatory) courses, can be found here. The partner universities websites will provide full course list - most of the electives currently offered will probably run next year too, although here some changes are possible depending on availability of the relevant faculty members offering the courses.
The final annex of each edition of our Program Guides also has a short description of the courses available.
3) What does it mean that Mundus MAPP is a joint program?
Mundus MAPP was designed to be an integrated study program even though it takes place in two different institutions (and countries) over two years. It is offered by four universities, and although it is coordinated by Central European University, its main decision making body is the Academic Board with representation from each consortium institution. The Board decides on regulations, disciplinary matters, progression to year 2 and graduation.
The thesis report, thesis, internship and study trip are the joint elements of the program. These are administered and evaluated jointly by the consortium institutions. The Mundus MAPP degree is also jointly issued by the consortium universities.
