The Communications and Public Policy (COPP) program offers a unique set of courses that focus on both public and private-sector communications with an emphasis on how this impacts public policy. The Communications and Public Policy major explores the connection between communicating with citizens and creating, implementing, and evaluating public policy. Students in the program will explore the influence of communications in the process of a participatory democracy, preparing them to work as communications professionals in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.

The program encourages its graduates to be able to work in both English and French and provides opportunities for bilingual students and French immersion students to continue their studies in both languages. Upper-year courses offer students the opportunity to complete course work (and internships) in English and French.
