About

At the Memorial University of Newfoundland, the Department of Political Science offers graduate courses, a graduate diploma and supervises MA students in all the major subfields of the discipline, including international relations, comparative politics, Canadian politics, public policy, and political theory.

Overview

Our faculty’s research interests cover a wide range: election campaigns and voting behaviour; ethnic conflict within and between states; public administration; provincial politics; aboriginal law and politics; gender and politics; the politics of financial regulation; health care policy and governance; foreign policy; international peace building; the history of international thought; and identity and political theory. 

We offer a master degree in Political Science at the Memorial University of Newfoundland. We also have special area expertise in Western and Southern Europe (particularly Italy, Spain and the Balkan states); the United States; and Newfoundland and Labrador. In addition, our MA program offers high-quality training in the methodology of political research.

The quality of our research and teaching is reflected in our programs and our students' successes. Our Graduate Diploma in Political Science provides an opportunity to acquire additional academic credentials at the graduate level without committing to a full master’s program.
