Studying politics focuses your attention on the pressing problems of our times and the potential for changing them.  We offer courses that develop the analytical skills and knowledge necessary to understand power, culture, law, policy and government in Canada.  We also offer programs that engage with issues of Global peace, war, environment, development, governance and media.  Our students have proceeded to prestigious graduate programs, schools of law and journalism and pursued subsequent degrees in public administration and education.  They have developed careers in federal, provincial and municipal government as well as global and local business, non-profit and activist organizations.  Politics is where great ideas and urgent practice are united.
