Overview

Master of Public Policy

McGill University’s Max Bell School of Public Policy offers a full-time and intensive 11-month Master of Public Policy (MPP) program. 

The program is designed for participants who have been working for a few years after receiving their undergraduate degree. 

It combines insights regarding the theory of public policy with the many practical aspects that make the analysis, design, communication, and implementation of public policy so complex. 

The program also has an emphasis on developing the skills and perspectives essential for creating future leaders in the policy process, whether in government, business, or non-governmental organizations.

The Master of Public Policy is a 45-credit, non-thesis, program that includes five key components:

  • Core Policy Courses
  • Policy Case Studies
  • Complexity Seminars
  • Professional Development Days
  • Policy Lab

Students are challenged every day to improve their analytical abilities and enhance their policy toolkit.

Given that many of the crucial challenges of public policy exist similarly in all countries, the program develops the essential skills for both international and Canadian students to shape policy in a constantly evolving global landscape.
