Program Information

School:Western University
Faculty:Faculty of Social Science
Field of Study:Political Science and Government, General
Description:Almost every aspect of our lives requires some sort of political activity. The policies and principles which governments endorse and follow determine how our society deals with issues such as education, welfare, housing, health care, and crime. Whether countries are at war or at peace depends both on what governments do and who supports them. Our values, our careers, our freedoms, and our responsibilities are all formed in a political context. Therefore, to study politics is to study the real world. Political science courses will help you develop the skills necessary to make sense of that world.

A major in Political Science prepares students for a wide range of jobs in law, government, journalism, business, or interest group advocacy. A degree in political science offers not just the knowledge and background needed for these jobs, but the skills as well. Research, analysis, and public speaking skills figure highly in our courses. Political Science is interdisciplinary in nature and is a perfect complement to a great range of other subjects such as economics, history, sociology, psychology, geography, criminology, philosophy, or business.
