About the Double Degree programme
The double degree offers students an outstanding opportunity to study at two world-leading universities and gain a Master of Public Administration (MPA) from the London School of Economics and a Master of Global Affairs (MGA) from the University of Toronto.
Throughout the two-year programme students will develop key policy skills through an immersion in public and international affairs and will benefit from access to the expert faculty, careers support, internship resources and alumni networks of both prestigious institutions.
The double degree draws on the unique academic strengths of each institution. The first year of study at LSE’s School of Public Policy will equip students with key skills in political science, economics, quantitative analysis and an understanding of the philosophical principles underlying good public policy. The second-year at University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, adds an international affairs dimension with in-depth study of the global system and its stakeholders, innovation policy, global justice, development, markets, and security.
The array of courses and perspectives, as well as the immersion in problems with international and global reach, powerfully combines the expertise of these two institutions and prepares graduates to engage with complex policy issues in national and global policy making.
