Political science asks questions about power and justice: who governs, for what purposes, and with what limits. We examine citizens and governments in Canada and around the world, international relations, public policies, war and peace, citizenship and more. Success in today's world depends on a clear understanding of how government and power work. Empowered citizens can not only describe and explain society but use their understanding to change it. Glendon's political science program fosters rigorous analysis, clear thinking, and effective communication on the major issues of our times, including democracy and participation, human rights, peace and security, migration and citizenship, the environment, public management, inequality, crime, corruption, global governance, and more.
As a Glendon political science student, you'll learn in dynamic, innovative, and small classes, with the personalized attention for which Glendon is lauded.
