About

The Department of Political Studies at University of Saskatchewan offers thesis-based and project-based master’s degree programs with emphasis in the fields of Canadian government and politics, Northern politics and policy, political thought, public policy, governance of voluntary organizations, international relations or comparative politics, particularly the politics of developing countries.

Overview

Program Details

The Thesis program at University of Saskatchewan includes a four course requirement and a 75-page thesis. The Project based program requires 6 courses and a major research paper.

In comparison to Political Studies graduate programs at other Canadian universities, this one is relatively small. Only 10-12 new graduate students are admitted each year. As a result, more time and attention is given to student concerns, especially to the planning of each student's course of study. Greater coordination is achieved among faculty in order to provide the desired courses and there is closer contact between students and faculty both in course and thesis work.

  • Research Design and Methods in Political Studies
  • Theoretical Readings in Contemporary Political Studies
  • Theories of Canadian Governance and Politics
  • Canadian Government and Politics
  • Canadian Constitution and Politics
