The School of Public Policy and Administration at Carleton University is a leading national and international centre for teaching and research in public administration and public policy. The School offers a suite of courses on sustainable development within the ‘Innovation, Science and Environment’ concentration of its existing Master of Public Policy and Administration and a Graduate Diploma in Sustainable Development. Students who complete the diploma and who are subsequently admitted to the Master of Public Policy and Administration may apply up to five of the courses from the diploma towards the MPPA, reducing its length from 15 courses to 10.
Our students’ easy access to government departments, foreign embassies, the National Library and Archives, and a multitude of industry associations, national voluntary organizations and international NGOs is a clear advantage when completing their studies and looking for employment.
