“MPM is more than applied political science. It’s learning both how politics operates, along with how you can effectively play a part in shaping the policies, platforms, and legislation that it turns out. It’s meeting people from different political stripes and learning not just to respect them but to understand them.
This program is for people who want to strategically advance an agenda that they believe it. Studying in Ottawa means that you can volunteer for NGOs, political parties, and think-tanks. You have supportive alumni and interested professionals all around you. The professors are well-known in their fields with years of first-hand experience. Many have headed up the offices of former Prime Ministers, Ministers, some run their own data firms, and others are the Nation’s experts on lobbying. There is something in this program for every passionate politico.” – Savannah DeWolfe
