The centrepiece of the College is an undergraduate program in Public Affairs and Policy Management — a direct response to the changing nature of civic society and the growing need for university graduates who can work effectively in┬áchallenging policy environments.

This interdisciplinary program is structured around a core curriculum of courses in public affairs and policy management that examine the foundations of civic life and the various factors that come into play in shaping society. In addition, you’ll find a selection of courses that introduce you to the disciplines where civic life is a principal focus — courses in Canadian history, economic analysis, quantitative research, Canadian government, organizational theory and public law.
