The Masters in Public and International Affairs prepares Canada's future leaders for today's global challenges. It has three distinguishing features.  First, it is bilingual, students being required to take one-third of their courses and do their assignments in them in Canada's other official language. Second, it seeks to fuse together theory and practical knowledge. Instructors are both academics and practitioners.  Students learn to write briefing notes and memos to senior government officials. Students of MPIA program will undertake a paid supervised internship with a government department, an international agency, or a non-governmental organization. Those students who wish to pursue an academic career can do a major research paper in their final year. Third, it is multidisciplinary and integrative: students are exposed in their courses to different methodological approaches and skills. The second-year Capstone Seminar is designed to bring together these diverse aptitudes in a dynamic learning environment. This MPIA program has a strong international component. It encourages second-year students to go on a one-term exchange or to opt for the double Masters degree the MPIA has with the Université de Strasbourg in France.
