About

Brock University MA program in Political Science offers the high-quality academic pursuit available in larger institutions, but in a more intimate and collegial setting. Students are given the opportunity to work closely with the department’s nationally and internationally recognized faculty in small, seminar-style classes and in one-one interactions.

Overview

Most MA students in the department are also employed as teaching or research assistants, allowing them to earn income to support their studies, while exposing them to the real worlds of academic teaching and research.

Program Details

The MA program in Political Science offered by Brock University allows students to specialize in one of five sub-fields of political science: Canadian politics, comparative politics, international relations, political philosophy, and public policy.
