A Degree that Opens Many Doors
The Master of Applied Politics (MAP) attracts both recent graduates who want an edge as they launch their careers in the public or private sectors and mature students already in the job market who want to take their careers to the next level.
Students learn real-world skills — such as policy, electoral and media analysis, survey instrument design, and problem solving in domestic and international contexts — and gain practical experience in placements with community organizations, local politicians and government agencies.
Our diverse faculty offer research expertise in:
- International relations and cross-border governance.
- Public policy (e.g., social, aboriginal, environmental, (multi)cultural, migration).
- International political economy and trade.
- Public opinion, elections and parties.
- Canadian politics (e.g., multi-level governance, Quebec).
- Area studies (e.g., North America, Africa, Europe, Asia, Latin America).
- International human rights.
