MPA vs MA?

<p>I recently heard that a Masters in Public Administration is worth less than a Masters in something like economics etc. Is this true?</p>

<p>Reason I ask is that one of the programs that I got accepted into and am now considering is a Masters in Public Administration in Public and Economic Policy (MPA-Public and Economic), a two year degree at the London School of Economics (LSE).</p>

<p>However, how does that compare to a MA in orther schools-English and/or US? Also, while we are on the subject, any input into a 2 year MPA program over an MPP program from GPPI or another Public Policy focused degree compared to the MPA would be greatly appreciated.</p>

<p>It just always gets so complicated! Really wish I had more time to compare all these options, but applying while finishing an undergrad is something close to a human rights violation....oh well.</p>
