Simon Fraser University Public Policy Program

The Public Policy Program at Simon Fraser University (SFU), founded in the fall of 2003, is comprised of the Master’s in Public Policy (MPP) graduate program and the Centre for Public Policy Research (CPPR).

The Master’s in Public Policy is a two-year graduate program with a mandate to provide a professional graduate education that turns out skilled public policy analysts and managers who can assess problems, interpret and analyze relevant data, and then evaluate alternative approaches to action. A strong emphasis is placed on the practical application of principles, as well as analysis from the social science disciplines. Students master a core set of skills in policy analysis, politics, economics, research, and quantitative methods.

The Centre for Public Policy Research draws on the experience of predominant SFU experts across many fields, including labour markets, the environment, trade policy, immigration, Canadian and international political economy, policy analysis, First Nations research, land use, communications, foreign policy, national and international security policy. The Centre has a working paper series, hosts regular seminars, and sponsors conferences and symposia on diverse public policy topics.
