As one of Canada’s premier departments of political science, we are committed to both research and teaching. Our faculty are actively engaged in a wide range of research activities and projects, and highly visible in the discipline of political science both in Canada and abroad.
And we are no less committed to our students. We offer a full range of undergraduate and graduate programs in politics. Our undergraduate program—one of the most popular programs at Queen’s—provides students with a solid grounding in political science. At the graduate level, we offer the Master of Arts and the Doctor of Philosophy in Canadian politics, comparative politics, gender and politics, international relations, and political theory.
