Wilfrid Laurier University Graduate Calendar - 2006/2007
Canadian Excellence

International Public Policy

Under the auspices of the Laurier Centre for Global Relations, Governance and Policy (CGRGP), Laurier will offer a unique, one year masters program in international public policy (MIPP). The program has received enthusiastic support from CGRGP, the Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS) and the independent research Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) and is viewed as an integral part of the global governance and international relations network that has formed in Waterloo.

To reflect its interdisciplinary nature, the MIPP program will be cooperative between the Faculty of Arts and the School of Business and Economics (SBE) and will be based in the Laurier Centre for Global Relations, Governance and Policy.

Note: Faculty participating in MIPP are drawn from a number of academic departments across campus. Participants may change from year to year.
