Website: Master of Public Administration
The Master of Public Administration is the flagship professional program of the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, western Canada's newest School of Public Policy. Created by pooling resources from the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina, the School builds on the reputation and experience developed in a province renowned for innovation and service in public policy and administration.
The M.P.A. is an exciting program designed to prepare students for careers in policy work in such diverse areas as NGOs, industry associations and, of course, the public service. Students in the program will be exposed to core concepts in policy formation and analysis; they will also have the opportunity to explore areas such as health and social policy; science, technology and innovation; and trade and transnational regulation.
