The Department of Political Science offers both a Master of Arts and a Doctor of Philosophy in Political Science.
Students in the MA program can tailor their degree program to meet their own interests and goals. The degree can be completed either through coursework only, or through a combination of coursework and a thesis or major research paper. The department offers a wide array of graduate courses across the fields of Political Science.
The Doctor of Philosophy offers rigorous, focused study in two fields of Political Science; students choose from Political Theory, International Relations, Comparative Politics, Canadian Politics, Public Policy and Gender and Diversity. Doctoral students are also eligible to apply for the Collaborative PhD in Political Economy.
Please see our MA and PhD Guidelines (found under “MA Program” and “Doctoral Program” at left) for detailed information on the programs. Potential students are welcome to contact the Graduate Administrator or Graduate Supervisor for additional information on program or degree requirements.
