Welcome

Clayton H. Riddell Graduate Program in Political Management

Have a passion for politics? Then, our master’s program may be what you are looking for.

As political staff to cabinet ministers and elected representatives, strategists and tacticians for political parties, campaign managers and communication officers, policy advocates for civil society organizations and grassroots movements, they are essential to democratic practice and to the institutions and apparatus of contested politics.  However, until now there has been no formal education available to them in the professional skills of applied politics in Canada.

In response, Carleton University has created Canada’s first graduate program in political management: an intensive master’s degree designed to provide a professional foundation for students who will go on to leadership roles in the political offices and parties of the nation, and intended to contribute to a more constructive politics and well-informed policy decisions.
