Community, Public Affairs and Policy Studies (BA)

Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Offered by:
School of Community and Public Affairs, Faculty of Arts & Science

Why choose Community, Public Affairs and Policy Studies?

When you study public policy analysis, policy advocacy and community economic development, you’ll graduate ready to jump into in the policy-making process in private, public, and community sectors.

Our bilingual program is energized by our students, who bring a diverse range of backgrounds and a broad spectrum of community experience to each class. You study in small, congenial groups and are encouraged to pursue another Arts or Science program at the same time.

Combining academics with activism strengthens your experience. You’ll hone your sensitivity to social, economic and political factors influencing the public policy process and explore such values as:

  • Social and economic justice
  • Equity
  • Participatory citizenship and democracy
  • Cultural pluralism

You integrate the theoretical with the practical. You can do an internship, and we ground our work through close relationships with community organizations, public and private institutions, and unions.
