The Masters in International Public Policy (MIPP) is an intensive 12-month (three semester) graduate program offering advanced academic training in policy making and policy analysis in a globalized context. The program runs September-August each year, and comprises three consecutive semesters of coursework.

Students take four courses per semester, beginning with a common core curriculum in the fall semester. In the winter and spring semesters, students specialize in two of four international public policy fields: international economic relations, human security, international environmental policy and global governance.

See the full MIPP program description (including complete course descriptions) in Wilfrid Laurier University’s Graduate Academic Calendar.
