The Political Science Department at University of Windsor is committed to providing funding packages that match or beat those of other MA programs.
- The Department of Political Science at Windsor gives students the chance to be part of a growing and vibrant academic community.
- The department has exceptional resources available to fund its M.A. students, and offers two exciting paths to pursue graduate work:
- an M.A. degree, which can generally be completed in one calendar year (September to September) through the completion of courses and either a major research paper or a master's thesis;
- and the M.A. internship option that combines the M.A. coursework with a 6-month paid internship and valuable hands-on work experience.
Great Career Prospects
Graduates from our M.A. program have an exceptional record following completion of their degrees. Our graduates work for Canadian MPs and Senators, in the provincial legislature, and for a number of municipal governments. Many also work for federal government agencies such as CSIS, Health Canada, and the diplomatic service. Others have gone on to become lawyers and journalists, while still others go on to Ph.D. programs. Recent graduates of the program have gone on to undertake Ph.D. research at Carleton University, the University of Victoria, the University of Michigan, and the University of Chicago, among others. The skills you will develop in our M.A. program will assist you in securing a place in a Ph.D. program.
