Public Policy & Public Administration/MPPPA (MA)

Master of Arts (MA)

Program overview

The MA in Public Policy and Public Administration gives you the training needed to succeed in public sector organizations, including the public service and non-governmental organizations. You will apply your research to issues of democratic governance, analyzing complex political situations in order to provide expert strategic advice. Coursework and events organized through the Workshops of Social Science Research provide occasions to connect with political leaders and pundits, senior-level bureaucrats and academics. Students enrolled in the internship option benefit from a four-month job placement in the public or private sector during the final semester of their studies. The majority of our graduates secure paid internships with government agencies in Ottawa and Montreal, with some finding opportunities further afield in major centres such as Geneva and Washington. Around 95 per cent of our internship students accept full- or part-time positions immediately following their placement.
