The Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy (JSGS) is a provincial centre for advanced education, research, and outreach and training activities with campuses at both the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan. The school provides students and faculty the opportunity to work on contemporary public policy and administration challenges in an academic environment renowned for innovation and is fast becoming a destination for students from across the country and around the world.
The Public Policy MPP program offered by University of Saskatchewan is designed so that students can finish in as little as 16-24 months of studying full time. Upon entry into the program, each student is assigned a research advisor and an advisory committee.
The school’s scholarly work includes: public process intelligence, budgets and public finance, multi-level governance, agenda setting, decision making, ethical leadership and good governance, all within the context of the faculty’s substantive research areas (social policy, health policy, innovation policy, public-sector management, resource and environmental policy, and trade and immigration policy).
