The Political Science program of University of New Brunswick joint master's program on the Fredericton and Saint John campuses brings together some of the country’s leading scholars to help students understand the dynamics of political power, institutions, decision-making and change. Classes are kept deliberately small so that students can pursue their unique interests under the close supervision of a dedicated faculty member.
Our graduates go on to pursue doctoral programs, law school and other professional programs, or embark on careers with government, international organizations, the courts, schools, and public service groups.
UNB's graduate program in political science can offer supervision across all the main sub-fields:
- Canadian Politics
- International Relations
- Comparative Politics
- Gender and Politics
- Political Economy

Graduates of UNB's Master of Arts in Political Science have built their careers locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. Some have gone on to doctoral programs, law school and other professional programs.
Others have embarked on careers with:
- international organizations
- non-profit organizations
