About

The Master in Public Administration from Queen's University is a one-year, multidisciplinary program for full-time students. The program has been preparing students at the entry and mid-career levels for leadership roles in public service and policy-making for more than thirty-five years. 

Overview

The program's emphasis is on public policy, and the broad social, economic and political context within which public organizations operate. The program from Queen's University aims to develop policy leaders. Policy leadership requires skills in policy analysis and the capacity to implement new solutions.

 Policy and management are clearly interdependent. Without an understanding of the basic purposes that public organizations seek to achieve through policy, management is an empty process. Without the management skills to translate commitment into action, policy goals are empty promises.

Career options:

Public Administration graduates hold positions as ministers and senior officials in all three levels of government, as well as providing leadership in hospitals, community organizations and national associations across Canada.
