The Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy’s two-year Master of Public Policy (MPP) program is highly interdisciplinary, bridging 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.

In the MPP program, you will gain the knowledge and experience you need to become a leader in addressing today’s complex policy problems. Located on the St. George campus in the heart of downtown Toronto and in close proximity to an extraordinary concentration of policy leaders, you will be in the centre of a vibrant and engaged community and have constant access to the best minds in policy. However you aim to advance the public good, a Munk School education will empower you to achieve your professional and personal goals. The University of Toronto is Canada’s largest university, recognized as Canada’s top university and one of North American’s best public research universities. U of T’s distinguished faculty, institutional record of groundbreaking scholarship, and wealth of innovative academic opportunities continually attract outstanding students and academics from around the world.

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 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.
