Thank you for considering applying to the School of International Policy and Governance at Wilfrid Laurier University and the Balsillie School of International Affairs. I am so glad you are here to learn more about how to make a difference in the world.
As you explore the various aspects of our graduate programs, you will see that our course offerings are relevant to current global issues such as humanitarian crises, social and economic stability, digital espionage, and environmental degradation. We review and update our course offerings regularly to provide you with the best and most current program possible. You will be taught by leading scholars from multiple disciplines and can expect a network of support to help guide your academic journey.
We appreciate that learning can also happen through interactions with students, faculty and the wider Laurier community. Within our program, we have invited international guests, including diplomats in residence, and visiting scholars who share their field expertise in formal and informal conversations with students. Our doctoral program in global governance and master program in international public policy are known for building relationships with peers within and across the years, enriching your intellectual community and professional network. In addition to the accomplishments of our faculty, staff, students, and alumni, they are empathic, have a sense of humour, and manage a healthy work-life balance.
Within the School of International Policy and Governance, we aim to provide you with a great environment for learning both hard and soft skills and co-creating a meaningful life. When you take the next step in your education to support your future solving large-scale, complex problems, I hope you will consider applying to one of our programs.
I look forward to seeing you at the Balsillie School.
