Programs & Courses

    The Department of Political Science participates in the delivery of both undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The Department of Political Science offers a major in political science for the 40-course Bachelor of Arts (BA) or the Bachelor of Arts and Science (BASc) degree programs. As a political science major, you can also do a Combined BA/BEd or BA/BMgt. Alternatively, you can a general major in the social sciences and select political science as one of your three streams. Students selecting these degree programs will have the opportunity to take a large variety of courses.

    The Department also participates in the delivery of the Canadian studies, and urban and regional studies majors. Canadian studies focuses on developing a deeper appreciation of our Canadian identity across a wide range of disciplines. Urban and regional studies focuses on the analysis of the physical, social, economic and political factors that shape our cities and regions.
