Housed within Canada’s first bilingual School of Public and International Affairs, our Master’s program offers a unique, high-quality bilingual education that prepares students for leadership roles in public life. The program is fully funded for domestic (Canadian) students. Entry scholarship opportunities are available for high-achieving international students, Through this two-year degree, students become well versed not only in public policy and administration, but in public affairs — a broader examination of Canadian public institutions and the domestic and international settings in which they function. The program will equip you with the skills to analyse the key challenges in Canadian public life, place Canada’s public institutions in their global content, apply the core knowledge and tools of public management and policy, and work effectively in both English and French. Students complete a 12-week internship with public institutions and international organisations during the third term of the program.
