Program Information
Faculty: School of Public Policy and Administration
Degree: Doctorate
Field of Study: Public Administration
Description The Ph.D. focuses on the study of public policy, including its formation, evolution and implementation. The primary focus is on Canada in an international or comparative context, though students interested in research with an explicitly international and comparative perspective will also find the program conducive to their work, depending on the field of specialization chosen. The program is based on the view that multi-disciplinary perspectives are essential to an understanding of the public sector and public policy-making. The program has two primary objectives: to contribute to the advancement of research and teaching of public policy by drawing on various theoretical frameworks, multidisciplinary perspectives, and applied methodologies; to develop scholars and researchers for positions in universities, private research institutions, and various other public and private organizations
