UBC Arts Co-op Program


The Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs (MPPGA) Co-operative Education Program allows MPPGA graduate students to acquire practical, paid work experience specific to policy-related professions as a compliment to their classroom learning. Work placements occur during the summer between the first and second years of the MPPGA program. Co-op graduates will be well prepared, academically and professionally, for their future careers as policy practitioners in diverse sectors around the world.
