After a thorough review by the Canadian Association of Programs in Public Administration (CAPPA), the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy has successfully completed the accreditation process, reinforcing the high quality of their Master of Public Administration (MPA) and Master of Public Policy (MPP) programs.
The Canadian Association of Programs in Public Administration is an association of schools, programs and departments across Canada engaged in teaching and research in public administration. It has been in existence for thirty years and its mission is to improve the quality of teaching and research in public administration. It also represents the common interests of college and university-based public administration programs and scholars.
“This recognition of our programs by such a well-respected association confirmed that our students are receiving a high-quality education that is preparing them with the proper tools to be successful in their careers,” said Michael Atkinson, executive director, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy. “With this step forward, our hope is our programs will experience further growth with regards to student recruitment and partnerships with other institutions and industries.”
The Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, with campuses at the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina, is an interdisciplinary center for public policy research, teaching, outreach and training. The school is joining Carleton, Ryerson and Western universities as one of four policy programs with accreditation status in Canada, and is the first program in Western Canada to receive this recognition.
