Real and ideal: engagement for changing the world
Our MA in Political Science is designed to foster a deeper understanding of politics across the world at multiple scales (domestic, regional, global) while also allowing students to develop the analytical and professional skills required for success in both academic and non-academic job markets.
With 22 faculty members in our department and an additional 15 associated faculty, our program offers a wide range of courses and graduate research supervision and opportunities across a broad range of topic areas with specific strengths in Canadian politics and conflict and conflict resolution among others.
Moreover, the MA program offers political economy as an identified field of concentration with related courses in government and business, international business and development, political economy theory, comparative political economy (including China among other countries), international political economy, and global economic governance.
We offer both traditional and interdisciplinary courses, as well as inter-university course options. Students will also benefit enormously from our formal links with international research institutions including Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) and the Balsillie School of International Affairs.
