The MAAPPS program is designed to offer you great flexibility in targeting your coursework to your specific policy areas of interest. Some students find most of the courses they enrol in among the Institute's course offerings while others piece together a curriculum from the amazing resources on specific topics across campus and beyond.
The Program's core course, IAR 500, is 6 credits and is comprised of a "Methods & Perspectives" seminar course in the Fall and two 6-week modules in the Spring. The modules represent the six thematic streams offered in the Program.
