Dual Degree in London

LSE/University of Toronto double degree – Master of Public Administration and Master of Global Affairs

The dual degree between the University of Toronto and the London School of Economics and Political Science will allow students to gain two distinct and complementary degrees — a Master of Global Affairs (MGA) from Toronto and a Master of Public Administration (MPA) in London — in six sessions rather than the four years otherwise required to complete these degrees consecutively. Students enrolled in the dual degree will benefit from the unique academic strengths of each institution, the depth of the networks centered in their geographic regions, their distinct professional training, and internship resources. By attending institutions based in London and Toronto, they will benefit from studying global affairs from two different contexts. By combining a Master of Public Administration and a Master of Global Affairs, students will benefit from two complementary perspectives on the pressing global challenges of the 21st century.
