Political Science is a research-intensive and teaching-oriented department, offering students a dynamic and engaging environment. Our faculty members pursue a wide range of research interests, are widely published, and are active in obtaining grant funding from SSHRC and other sources. The department also has a strong track record in helping graduate students obtain research funding of their own, including SSHRC, OGS, and Trillium. With small class sizes and ample faculty support, our graduate programs are dedicated to improving students’ skills as researchers and communicators. The PhD program is designed both for students interested in pursuing academic positions and also for students interested in working in research capacities in the public, non-profit or private sectors.
