The objective of the MA program in Political Sciences, offered by the University of Manitoba, is to provide an advanced level of understanding of political systems, decision-making processes, and procedures, institutions, and policies at all levels of government. The degree is designed to prepare students to pursue further graduate work and also prepare them for careers in education, law, politics, community development, policy analysis, journalism, advocacy, management, and consulting.
The main purpose of the MA program is to provide students with a solid background in Political Studies, first, by ensuring that they acquire a comprehensive knowledge in at least two fields of Political Studies, and, second, by developing their ability to undertake independent research. The five fields of Political Studies covered by the Department of Political Studies are: Canadian politics, comparative politics, international relations, political theory and public administration. The MA program consists of two independent streams of study: the course-based stream and the thesis stream. Students are expected to select a stream at the beginning of their program of study.
