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 MA program revolves around the theme of Rights, Justice, Citizenship, and Identity while allowing flexibility for students to pursue their various interests. Within the broader framework of Rights, Justice, Citizenship and Identity, the Department has particular strengths in Public Policy and Administration and Global Justice and Politics and offers a number of courses related to those topics.
