Carleton University’s MPM Program

Published on:

The Government Relations Institute of Canada (GRIC) is pleased to endorse the Clayton H. Riddell Graduate Program in Political Management. This program is Canada’s first graduate degree of its kind: an intensive master’s degree designed to provide a professional foundation for individuals who aspire to leadership roles in political offices or parties, non-governmental organizations, or firms that specialize in government relations, communications, or public opinion research.

The full-time degree looks to equip its graduates with an essential grasp of democratic processes and an understanding of the institutions through which they are administered. It aims to cultivate a set of professional skills required to work as a political manager and strategist, and in the process, contribute to a more constructive kind of politics and more well-informed policy decisions.

Through a one-year course of study, students will be exposed to a range of programs in applied political skills and analysis. The degree culminates with a 10-week practicum that places students in a political office or government relations firm, where they will learn by observing and participating in the process, complementing their coursework with practical experience.
