York's executive-style Master of Public Policy, Administration and Law (MPPAL) is an interdisciplinary program designed to provide you with the skills needed for effective public administration and public policy analysis, with an emphasis on the themes of constitutional and administrative law and social justice.

It draws on the strengths of faculty from across York University, including the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies, Glendon College, Osgoode Hall Law School and Environmental Studies.

The MPPAL is offered as a part-time executive or professional development program, allowing you to pursue a degree and enhance your career prospects while continuing to work full-time.
