About the Munk School


The Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy is a professional, degree-granting, interdisciplinary school focused on global issues. Our mission is to deeply integrate research on global affairs with teaching and public education, and we are the home of world-renowned researchers and more than 30 academic centres and initiatives, including:

The Munk School also is home to 13 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 Munk can take majors ranging from Contemporary Asian Studies to American Studies, while graduate students can have a range of options, from the MA in European, Russian and Eurasian Studies to the Collaborative Master’s in Asia-Pacific Studies.

Professional Degrees AT A GLANCE

The Munk School offers two professional two-year degree programs, the Master of Global Affairs (MGA) and the Master of Public Policy.

The highly-selective MGA invites the very best of Canada and the world’s students to complete a groundbreaking two-year program that incorporates campus-based study with mandatory global internships in their chosen field. The Munk School and the Sciences Po School of Public Affairs in Paris also offer a dual degree program between their respective Master of  Global Affairs (MGA) and Master in Public Policy degrees. 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).

The Munk School’s Master of Public Policy (MPP) bridges the spheres of domestic policy and international or global policy in order to address the complex issues facing modern governments and other policy-making organizations. The MPP program features core instruction on a small-group, cohort-based model. In addition to the core material considered essential for policy practice, students take electives both within the Munk School and in the broader University. Invited visiting public sector leaders and external researchers bridge theory and practice, providing contact with senior professionals in government and the broader public, private and community sectors. The program also provides access to courses and research facilities available in many other graduate departments, centres and institutes across the University.
