The School of Policy Studies at Queen's is committed to positively shaping public policy through education of the leaders of the future. Interdisciplinary and experiential learning opportunities provide our students with the perspective, connections and inspiration to discover solutions to complex social issues. We immerse our students in current public policy discourse through a network of faculty, alumni, researchers and community partners, providing active opportunities to impact public good.
