Frequently Asked Questions

I have previously taken courses in political science, public administration and economics.  Does this qualify me for advanced standing in the program?

When your application is being reviewed for admission, any overlap between previous degree studies with the Professional Master of Public Administration (P.M.P.A.) curriculum will be identified. You may be granted an exemption from one or more of the core courses. In each case, you will be required to take a substitute course in place of any required course from which you have been exempted.

Only graduate courses that have not credited towards a degree, diploma or certificate, will normally be considered for advanced standing on admission to the PMPA program.
