Program Information

School:University of Calgary
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op; Honours
Field of Study:Political Science and Government, General
Description:Political science is the study of conflict and cooperation within societies. At its most basic level, this entails asking how and why life and property should be protected, and how cultural and economic aspirations are expressed and accommodated. The study of national and international political systems involves investigation of how individuals, social movements, groups and parties relate to each other and to government; how governmental systems operate; and how and why certain policies work. The Honours program in Political Science provides undergraduates with an opportunity to study intensively in a sub-discipline that they find compelling. It offers students a challenging and invigorating learning environment that exposes them to the demands of rigorous intellectual research. Get a competitive edge when you enter the workforce after graduation with our Co-operative Education program. This combines 4-8 month work terms with your studies in Political Science. Co-op is a great way for you to gain work experience before you graduate, and gain valuable contacts in your industry of choice.
