Ontario Council of Graduate Studies Approves New Public Policy Program

The Ontario Council of Graduate Studies recently approved the Department's petition to transform its current program in Public Administration into a new program in Public Policy. The new Public Policy program will begin in the 2009-2010 academic year with the first student admissions to the program in September, 2009. Those interested in applying to the program should follow the regular application process and indicate Public Policy as their preferred area of concentration.

The switch to Public Policy reflects the Department's faculty strength in this sub-field, particularly in areas such as environmental policy, transportation policy, immigration policy, labour policy, and industrial policy, as well as related areas such as federalism and local government.
