About

The Master of Applied Politics (MAP) program from Wilfrid Laurier University is a hands-on graduate program grounded in the discipline of political science.

Overview

The one-year program in Applied Politics from Wilfrid Laurier University offers a variety of options to fulfil program requirements. You may choose a coursework-only option, consisting of eight half-credit courses, or you may choose to undertake a Major Research Project in addition to six half-credit courses.

Students learn real-world skills — such as policy, electoral and media analysis, survey instrument design, and problem solving in domestic and international contexts — and gain practical experience in placements with community organizations, local politicians and government agencies. 

Career

The Master in Applied Politics  is not your traditional political science degree because it offers a strong policy orientation as well as opportunities for faculty-supervised placements with government, non-government and advocacy organizations. It aims to help you think strategically as you prepare for the job market, all while emphasizing the goals and values of a strong liberal arts education.
