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 (ECON), human security (HS), international environmental policy (ENV) and global governance (GG).

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