When you study Community, Public Affairs and Policy Studies at Concordia University Montréal, you’ll graduate ready to jump into the policy-making process in private, public and community sectors.


Program Details

The bilingual Community, Public Affairs and Policy Studies program at Concordia University Montréal is energized by our students, who bring a diverse range of backgrounds and a broad spectrum of community experience to each class. You study in small, congenial groups and are encouraged to pursue another Arts or Science program at the same time.

Combining academics with activism strengthens your experience. You’ll hone your sensitivity to social, economic and political factors influencing the public policy process and explore such values as:

  • Social and economic justice
  • Equity
  • Participatory citizenship and democracy
  • Cultural pluralism

You integrate the theoretical with the practical. You can do an internship, and we ground our work through close relationships with community organizations, public and private institutions, and unions.
