The Master of Applied Politics (MAP) program is a hands-on graduate program grounded in the theoretical foundations of the discipline of political science.

Students learn real-world skills — such as policy, electoral and media analysis, survey instrument design, and problem solving in domestic and international contexts — and gain practical experience in placements with community organizations, local politicians and government agencies.

Students work closely with award-winning professors in a supportive environment while also taking advantage of the program’s connections to government, schools, not-for-profits and think-tanks, including the nearby Balsillie School of International Affairs, the Centre for International Governance Innovation and the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics.

All courses incorporate applied elements through experimentation, simulation and interactive projects. Students learn from faculty from diverse backgrounds — experts on topics as broad as political identity in Quebec and foreign intervention in Haiti — and from practitioners, including former MPP and Ontario Cabinet Minister John Milloy, and guest experts, which have included former Prime Minister Paul Martin, federal trade negotiator Terry Collins-Williams and IPSOS Reid CEO Darryl Bricker.


The Master of Applied Politics attracts both recent graduates who want an edge as they launch their careers in the public or private sectors as well as mature students who want to take their careers to the next level.

“The Master of Applied Politics program allows you to tailor your degree to your specific interests and career goals,” says Emma Linton, who graduated in 2016 and now works for a federal agency in Waterloo. “In my case, it gave me the skills and knowledge needed for work in public policy.”

Alumni have found work in politics, public service, law, journalism, the non-profit sector and education, among other sectors.


Eligible domestic students admitted to study on a full-time basis are entitled to one year of funding totalling, on average, $14,500. This support may be made up of teaching assistantships, internal/external scholarships, and/or faculty-funded studentships or research assistantships.

Winners of major external awards (OGS, QEII and Tri-Council) may be eligible for top-up funding which includes the Dean’s Graduate Scholarship (total value exceeds $10,000).

A list of all funding opportunities available to Laurier graduate students, including information about OGS, QEII and Tri-Council, is available on our graduate funding webpage.
