Master of Public Policy Program

The School of Public Policy and Governance is a professional school offering a two-year Master of Public Policy (MPP) degree.

The degree is highly interdisciplinary, bridging the spheres of domestic policy and international or global policy in order to address the complex issues facing modern governments and other policy-making organizations.

 

The MPP program features core instruction on a small-group, cohort-based model. In addition to the core material considered essential for policy practice, students take electives both within the School and in the broader University. Integrating seminars are led by faculty members. Invited visiting public sector leaders and external researchers bridge theory and practice, providing contact with senior professionals in government and the broader public, private and community sectors. The program also provides access to courses and research facilities available in many other graduate departments, centre and institutes across the University.
