What determines the prices of goods and services? How do individuals decide how much to spend and save? How can government policies help reduce environmental pollution? These are questions we all face every day. Economics is our attempt to analyze and understand them. Often seen as being all about money, at its more basic level, economics is concerned with the material well-being of human societies. Economics at Queen’s is widely recognized as one of the leading Economics departments in Canada. The programs are challenging, rigorous, and of small to medium size.

Concurrent Education 

Queen’s Concurrent Education is a five-year + one summer term program that prepares secondary school graduates to become educators and qualify for Ontario College of Teachers certification. Our graduates are out into the job market a year earlier, since most other Ontario faculties of education offer their programs over 6 years with typical fall/winter semesters.

With Queen’s ConEd, you will be working on two degrees at the same time – an Honours Bachelor of Arts (including French), Science (including Kinesiology), or Music, and a Bachelor of Education degree – both from day one! The BEd degree from Queen’s is widely accepted for teacher certification across Canada and around the world. What makes Queen’s grads more marketable is that they will all graduate with a concentration in one subject area. 

Concurrent Education students can apply for a program track in their final year. Program tracks include Artist in Community Education, Indigenous Teacher Education, Outdoor & Experiential Education, and Primary-Junior French as a Second Language

Political Studies is also concerned with the institutions created to govern communities, as well as with political practices such as voting habits or protests, and how rules, behaviours, and cultures are created in societies. Since power in society is often dependent upon material resources, political scientists also study the distribution of wealth, both within and between nations.

The Public Administration graduate program is a bridge between the academic world and the world of public affairs. Our multi-disciplinary MPA programs are focused on policy analysis, development and implementation, preparing new and experienced professionals for rewarding careers in the public, private and non-profit sectors. Our graduates have gone onto hold positions as ministers and senior officials in municipal, provincial and federal governments. They also provide leadership in hospitals, community organizations and national associations across Canada. Others still work for consulting firms in the private sector.

Earlier this year, the School of Policy Studies underwent its regular cyclical review. The external reviewers’ report acknowledged the clear strength of the school’s current programs, but also observed that the school requires an increased level of resources to maintain and build on the excellence of its programs.

Program renewal is essential to ensure the School of Policy Studies remains strong going forward. As a result, Queen’s University is currently examining a temporary suspension of admissions to our MPA and PMPA programs for Fall 2024. This temporary suspension would free up resources within the school to begin the process of renewal. A final decision on this will be made in early February 2024.

We are still accepting applications to these programs; however, applicants should be aware of this pending decision and that, as a result, we may not be admitting students to the program for Fall 2024.

Urban Planning is a profession and an academic discipline that is devoted to the organization of land use, resources and services in cities. Urban Planners require a sound knowledge of land use policy as well as strong legal, behavioral and social skills in order to successfully work in the field. Cities have become key sites for understanding contemporary social life. They are sites of innovation and creativity in economic, cultural and political life but they are also sites of striking inequality, poverty and conflict that pose a challenging array of planning, governance and environmental issues. Planners play a vital role alongside governments and social groups to guide the design and operation of cities with a view to securing the efficiency, health and well-being of urban and rural communities.
