Public Administration (MA)

Back to Program List
 

The School of Political Studies located in the Faculty of Social Science offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Arts (MA) and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in Public Administration.

The main objective of the master programs is to provide students with leading-edge theoretical and conceptual knowledge to enable them to understand and analyze public administration, as well as equipping them with the know-how and skills necessary for success in a constantly changing organizational environment. Emphasis is placed on the development of research skills.

The MA program aims to familiarize students with critical methods of knowledge production and to develop their capacity for conducting basic and applied research. Furthermore, they will develop the ability to extract from research the learning necessary for undertaking their responsibilities as public managers and policy analysts.

The PhD program aims to prepare students for academic and research careers. The various components of the doctoral program (courses, comprehensive examination, thesis proposal, thesis and defence) are all designed to develop the student’s capacity for high level independent research in social sciences.

The programs offer two fields or concentrations in public administration: public management and public policy. These fields are not mutually exclusive, but constitute the two main components of public administration studies.

The MA program is offered both full- and part-time, whereas the PhD program is offered full-time only. The programs are offered in French and English and the use of both languages is encouraged. Students can choose the master’s with thesis or the master’s with research paper.

Public Administration is a participating unit in the collaborative programs in Women’s Studies and in Environmental Sustainability (at the master's level). For more information on this program, see Admission.

The programs are governed by the general regulations of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (FGPS).

Admission to the graduate program in Public Administration is governed by the general regulations of the FGPS.

To be considered for admission, applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree with specialization or a major in public administration or in a related discipline with a minimum average of 70% (B).

MA Program

Students can choose the MA with thesis or the MA with research paper.

Collaborative Program in Women's Studies at the Master's Level

The public administration program participates in the collaborative program in Women’s Studies at the master’s level. The collaborative program was created to enable students to enrich their education in public administration by adding the interdisciplinary dimension of women's studies. Students should indicate in their initial application for admission that they wish to be accepted into the collaborative program. For further details, see the description of the program posted on the FGPS website.

The Women's Studies program consists of two compulsory Women's Studies (FEM) courses as well as a thesis or a research paper on a subject linked to Women's Studies. One of the FEM courses will count towards the requirements of the master's program with thesis, replacing the elective course. Both FEM courses will count towards the requirements of the master's program with research paper replacing two electives.

Collaborative Program in Environmental Sustainability

To be accepted into the collaborative program, the student must:

  • Be admitted first into the MA program in Public Administration.
  • Provide a reference letter from a professor that confirms that s/he agrees to supervise the student’s major research paper or thesis in the context of the collaborative program.
  • Submit a letter of intention that identifies the topic or the research question and explains why he or she wishes to pursue the collaborative program.

Students may take the collaborative program in environmental sustainability in English or in French.

Language Requirements

Students whose first language is other than French or English must provide proof in their application of their level of competence in these languages. The Public Administration Program reserves the right to conduct an interview and to require a test in either language. If a student’s research interests require comprehension of a language other than French or English, the Public Administration Program may require proof of such competency.

In accordance with the University of Ottawa regulation, students have a right to produce their work, their thesis, and to answer examination questions in French or in English.

Master's Degree with Thesis

  • 12 course credits including 9 compulsory credits (PAP6502*; PAP6103; and PAP6110 or PAP6111) and 3 elective credits chosen from the graduate courses in public administration or in other programs.
  • Presentation of a thesis proposal (PAP6998).
  • Presentation and defense of a thesis (PAP7999) based on an original research carried out under the direct supervision of a faculty member of the Department.

NOTE: Registration is limited to a maximum of three courses / seminars per session, not including the thesis proposal. Registration in the thesis proposal should take place as early as possible, ideally in the first session but by the third session at the latest.

*PAP6502, offered only in French, is compulsory for all students. Language support is available to those who might need it.

PAP6998 PROJET DE THÈSE DE MAÎTRISE / MASTER’S THESIS PROPOSAL
Students should begin the process of selecting a thesis topic and potential supervisor immediately upon commencing the program. The topic and supervisor are selected in consultation with an adviser and must be registered with the FGPS no later than the end of the second session in the program. Once the topic and supervisor have been chosen, the thesis proposal is prepared with the help of the supervisor.

The defence of the topic, which is the only requirement of POL6998, must be completed before the end of the third session of registration (preferably earlier). Once the topic has been defended, students are allowed to register for the thesis (PAP7999).

The thesis proposal is assessed by a committee, composed of the thesis supervisor and another professor chosen by the professor in charge of graduate studies in public administration in consultation with the student and the thesis supervisor.

PAP7999 THÈSE DE MAÎTRISE / MA THESIS (12cr.)
The thesis is prepared under the direction of the supervisor and evaluated following submission by a committee of professors proposed by the professor in charge of graduate studies in public administration. It is normally approximately twenty-five thousand words (between 80 and 120 pages).

The thesis must demonstrate the student’s capacity for scholarly analysis of a specific subject. It does not have to be an exhaustive study of the kind expected of a doctoral dissertation, but it must display a capacity for rigorous analysis of a specific subject. It is judged as much for its methodological quality as for its contribution to knowledge.

Master's Degree with Research Paper

  • 18 credits including 9 compulsory credits (PAP6502*; PAP6103; and PAP6110 or PAP6111) and 9 elective credits chosen from the graduate courses in public administration or in other programs.
  • Presentation of a research paper (PAP7998) based on an original research carried out under the direct supervision of a faculty member of the Department.

NOTE: Registration is limited to a maximum of three courses / seminars per session, not including the thesis proposal.

*PAP6502, offered only in French, is compulsory for all students. Language support is available to those who might need it.

PAP7998 MÉMOIRE / RESEARCH PAPER (6cr.)
Registration for the research paper is permitted in the second session. The research paper is approximately 12,000 words (50 pages) in length. It is evaluated by the supervisor and by another professor appointed by the professor in charge of graduate studies. Research papers are graded alpha and the grade (the average of both evaluations) appears on the transcript.

Collaborative Program in Women's Studies

Students admitted to the Collaborative program in women's studies at the master's level must meet the requirements for a master's degree in their primary program as well as the requirements of the women's studies program. Normally, the women's studies courses are recognized as partial fulfillment of the requirements of the student's primary program, in which case the passing grade in the relevant FEM course or courses is the same as that specified for the primary program.

The Women's Studies requirements are:

  • Two compulsory courses:
  • FEM5300 FEMINIST THEORIES (3cr.)
    FEM5103 FEMINIST METHODOLOGIES (3cr.)

    Students must complete the two compulsory courses before their first registration for the major research paper or thesis.
  • A thesis or research paper on a topic related to women, gender, feminism or sexualities. The proposed topic must be approved by the Women’s Studies Graduate Committee as well as by the student’s primary program. The thesis or research paper must demonstrate knowledge of feminist scholarship in the field or fields appropriate to the topic, and of feminist methodologies where applicable.
  • The thesis supervisor must possess Women’s Studies and/or feminist expertise. In the case of a research paper, the supervisor should, ideally, possess Women’s Studies and/or feminist expertise. If not, one of the readers must possess such expertise. Joint supervision by a professor from the participating unit and a professor chosen by the WSGC may be appropriate in some cases.
  • Thesis or research paper proposal: The thesis or research paper proposal must be approved by the Women’s Studies Graduate Committee as well as by the primary program. Usually the thesis or major research paper proposal is submitted to women’s studies by the end of the third session of the first year of studies. For the primary programs that do not require a proposal, students must still submit a proposal to the Women’s Studies Graduate Committee.
  • Examiner or Reader: One of the examiners (for the thesis) or reader (for the major research paper) must be a person approved by the Women’s Studies Graduate Committee.
  • The passing grade in all courses is C+. Students who fail two courses (equivalent to 6 credits) must withdraw from the program.

Collaborative Program in Environmental Sustainability

Students in the collaborative program must complete the requirements of their primary program and those of the collaborative program.

Students registered in the collaborative program in environmental sustainability must complete and pass the following courses:

Masters with thesis:
The compulsory course (3 credits)
EVD5100 SEMINAR IN ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY (3cr.)

This course replaces the elective course in the MA with thesis option.

Masters with Major Research Paper
The compulsory course (3 credits):
EVD5100 SEMINAR IN ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY (3cr.)
AND
One course chosen from the list of electives in the collaborative program.

These courses replace two of the three elective courses in the MA with research paper option.

Research Paper/Thesis
Students must also write their Major Research Paper or Thesis in the area of environmental sustainability. The collaborative program committee will determine if the student’s research topic conforms to this requirement.

The Co-op Option

In collaboration with the University of Ottawa’s co-op office, a co-op option is offered to a limited number of students in the master’s with research paper. This option gives selected students the opportunity to acquire practical work experience by completing two one-session (four months) work placements, normally in the public service.

There are two possibilities within the co-op option. One is to complete the first co-op work placement in the spring session of the first year and the second placement in the winter session of the second year. The other possibility is to complete two consecutive work placements over the spring session of the first year and the fall session of the second year. The eight-month placement enables students to engage in a longer project within the host organization and thus acquire a more valuable work experience. In both cases, students who enrol in the co-op option will obtain twelve credits (six credits per work placement) for their work experience and co-op reports. Each work term is graded P/F (Pass or Fail), based on the employer’s report and on a written report completed by the student. The student reports will be evaluated by a professor in the program (who also serves as the program’s representative on the University’s co-op Committee).

The credits awarded for co-op work terms may not be used to obtain equivalences for other courses. In other words, the co-op credits are additional to the minimum requirements of the MA degree.

To remain enrolled in the co-op option, students must:

  • Maintain full-time status.
  • Maintain a 7.0 grade point average.
  • Obtain a passing grade for each work term.

Transfer from Master’s to PhD Program

Students enrolled in the master’s program with thesis may be allowed to transfer to the PhD program without being required to write a master’s thesis. For additional information, please consult the “Admission” section of the PhD program.

Duration of the Program

Full-time students are expected to fulfill all requirements of the master’s with thesis and the master’s with research paper with co-op option within two years. Full-time students are expected to fulfill all requirements of the master’s with research paper (without co-op) within 16 months. The maximum time permitted is four years from the date of initial registration in the program, whether full- or part-time.

Residence

All students must complete a minimum of three sessions of full-time registration at the beginning of the program. In the case of transfer to the PhD, the residency period for the PhD is nine full-time sessions from the date of initial registration in the program.

Minimum Standards

The passing grade in all courses is C+. Students who fail two courses (equivalent to 6 credits), the thesis proposal, the research paper, the thesis or whose progress is deemed unsatisfactory are required to withdraw.
