Program DetailsThe 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. At the same time, all MA students are required to take core seminars focusing on the great works of political science and political science research methods. In this way, the program allows students to focus on their areas of research interest while ensuring they have the general knowledge and research skills necessary to see the significance of their research in broader context. The core seminars also contribute greatly to the widely renowned collegiality of the MA program
