The program is available through two options - a regular and an internship stream.
Students in the regular stream complete all program requirements over three consecutive academic terms and do not participate in an internship program during their studies.
Students in the internship stream participate in an approved internship program after the successful completion of their first two academic terms. Students pursuing this option return to campus the following winter term to complete their second field term and finish the program. For students in the internship stream, the program takes 20 months to complete. Students should be aware that their field choices may be more limited since the same two fields (for example, global governance and human security) could be offered in the Winter term in consecutive years.
The internship is optional and is undertaken at the initiative of the student.
To pursue this option, students must:
· submit a cover letter providing information on the internship program under consideration and a résumé to the MIPP Program Director by the end of the second week of the Winter term and,
· must normally have a minimum of an A standing overall in the Fall term.
