|Degree:||Bachelor; University Transfer
|Field of Study:||Political Science and Government, General
|Description:||Politics is about the interaction of power and justice, from the local to the global level. Political Science studies the ideas and processes that structure power to produce just or unjust outcomes. Political Scientists thus study a wide range of topics including Canadian elections and political parties, the politics of health care, global climate change, gender relations, international institutions, war and peace, and the good regime, to name just a few. A basic understanding of Political Science is required for many disciplines in University because the question of how power is distributed is central to any social institution. By studying and analyzing politics, students increase their understanding of culture, history, intellectual thought, and their own lives. The students’ writing and speaking skills improve as this happens, thereby benefiting their progress in all other discipline and program areas as well.
