Since it’s establishment 50 years ago, the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (NPSIA) has become internationally recognized for its preparation of future leaders in the foreign service, in nongovernmental agencies, and in governments worldwide. The list includes Canada’s ambassador to Italy, Alex Bugailiskis; Ontario Attorney General Yasir Naqvi; and Peter Boehm, Deputy Minister of International Development at Global Affairs Canada.
All three were among the Faculty of Public Affairs’ 75 for the 75th project in honour of Carleton University’s 75th anniversary.
NPSIA offers the most comprehensive advanced degree programs in international affairs at the graduate level in Canada, due to its interdisciplinary philosophy. Students are exposed to a wide range of disciplines including political science, economics, law, sociology, public health and history.
