Public Policy and Global Affairs program 


The University of British Columbia’s newly launched professional Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs (MPPGA) program will equip students with a broad policy foundation of strong analytical and technical skills – plus knowledge in development and social change, sustainability, resources, and energy, as well as global governance. Students will engage in hands-on policy projects to inform their perspective on global issues, including cross-Pacific dynamics. The MPPGA program will graduate policy professionals prepared to create boundary-crossing solutions to address urgent issues facing the world in the 21st century.

The MPPGA program is seeking ambitious, creative, and globally-minded students preparing for leadership positions, ready to navigate complex policy problems while driving positive global change. Apply by March 1st, 2015 to begin in Fall, 2015.
