Public Policy


The Master of Public Policy (MPP) is an intensive, full-time two-year professional program. Founded in 2006, it continues the University of Toronto's internationally recognized tradition of academic excellence and combines it with practical, real-world policy experience. Students graduate with a strong foundation of analytical and quantitative skills, core policy concepts, and overall management and leadership skills.

A mandatory and comprehensive policy internship program means that all MPP students at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy have the opportunity to transfer classroom theory into practical experience developing and implementing policy. Internship positions are available in a variety of organizations.​

Please note that Admissions selection to the MPP program is competitive and meeting this minimum requirement does not guarantee admission. (Final Year grades are based on the last five (5) Full Course Equivalent or ten (10) half course equivalents.)

Students may also be interested in the combined program in Law, Juris Doctor/Master of Public Policy (JD/MPP).
