The Glendon School is Canada’s first bilingual graduate school of public and international affairs. A unique Canadian institution, it combines a comprehensive bilingualism with a focus upon both public and international affairs. Adopting a global perspective, the School explores the relationship between public institutions and their larger environment. Its purpose is to advance research on public and international affairs; provide a high-quality bilingual master’s program; and offer innovative professional development programming.
The Glendon School is located in mid-town Toronto on the fully bilingual Glendon Campus of York University. This picturesque setting is the ideal venue for bringing together public leaders and academic specialists to discuss and debate the challenges facing contemporary public life.
The flagship component of the School, our Master’s program offers a uniquely bilingual education that will prepare students for leadership roles in public life. Students become well-versed not only in public policy and administration, but in public affairs – a broader examination of Canadian public institutions and the international environments in which they function.
