Department of Political Science
The Department of Political Science's long tradition in political philosophy has enriched the study and practice of political life in Canada and helped bring what is unique in the Canadian experience to the rest of the world. With expertise spanning every continent, the department brings an impressive intellectual breadth to bear in addressing the most enduring questions of politics. Our students are encouraged to think broadly, critically and internationally about the core features of democratic citizenship. Our graduates are becoming leaders in this country and elsewhere; their voices are heard in government, NGOs, business, the arts, law, universities, public policy and the media. With enhanced community support, one of the world's best departments of political science will be able to build a global scholarly reputation and expand the prime research and learning opportunities available to students.
