Political Science

The Political Science Department offers students with diverse interests a wide range of topical, thought-provoking courses in four fields of study:

  • Canadian Politics
  • Comparative Politics
  • International Relations
  • Political Thought

The Department’s aim is to provide students with a rich and rewarding learning experience, one that sharpens their critical skills, engages them in political ideas and practices, and grounds them in the world, locally and globally. The program thereby provides students with a solid foundation for their present and future endeavours, prepares them for a wide variety of career options, and enables them to contribute actively to society. For all these reasons, students are strongly encouraged to Major in Political Science and, for those interested in pursuing more advanced study, to apply to the Political Science Department’s Honours program.
