Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs

Become a global change maker. Get the policy degree the world demands.

The University of British Columbia’s (UBC) Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs (MPPGA) program equips future policy makers with a profound understanding of policy-making processes through a solid foundation of rigorous knowledge acquisition, policy analysis, career development, and experiential learning.

I believe the MPPGA program was instrumental in helping me develop the key skills needed to excel as a policy professional – strong policy research and analysis skills, writing and communication skills, as well as the ability to collaborate with diverse stakeholders and work successfully in a team.
