ABOUT THE MUNK SCHOOL OF GLOBAL AFFAIRS
The Munk School of Global Affairs unites people who are passionate to address the problems of a fast-changing world. Our aspiration is to create a unique, world-leading research, teaching and public engagement site that builds the new field of global affairs from Canada. We are the home of world-renowned researchers and more than 40 academic centres, labs and programs, including:
- Asian Institute
- Centre for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies
- Centre for the Study of the United States
- Citizen Lab
- Trudeau Centre for Peace, Conflict and Justice
Exceptional faculty and experts from around the world continue to gravitate to the Munk School. There are more than 230 affiliated faculty engaged in teaching and research, many of whom have cross-appointments in other faculties.
The Munk School also is home to 14 teaching programs, ranging from Munk One, a first-year foundational program with a focus on global problem-solving, to the Fellowship in Global Journalism, a program for professionals, scholars and subject-matter experts to gain global journalism skills.
Undergraduate students with the Munk School can take majors ranging from Contemporary Asian Studies to American Studies, while graduate students can have a range of options, from the master’s in European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies to the collaborative master’s in Asia-Pacific Studies.
The centrepiece of our academic core is the Master of Global Affairs (MGA) program, designed to develop a new class of innovators and problem solvers tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Against the backdrop of one of the world’s most diverse cities, the two-year MGA program offers a tailor-made, inter-disciplinary curriculum delivering the best of both an academic and a professional degree with mandatory global internships in students’ chosen field. In addition, students have the opportunity to combine degrees from the Rotman School of Management (MBA) or the University of Toronto Faculty of Law (JD) with the Master of Global Affairs degree (MGA).
