The Political Science MA program at York University candidates must take courses in at least two of the program's five fields. Those who plan to proceed to the PhD program are advised to select their courses with the future in mind.
All MA students must enroll in the MA Colloquium, a half credit course graded on a pass/fail basis. The MA Colloquium seeks to familiarize students with the range of scholarly work in which members of the Political Science faculty are engaged. York also offers a part-time MA program. Its general requirements are identical to the full-time program described above, save that candidates normally take only one full course per year. Candidates for the MA whether full or part-time, must complete all degree requirements within four years of their initial registration.
Program professors and graduate students are associated with such independent research institutes at York as the Centres for Asian Research, Feminist Research, German & European Studies, Global Labour Research, Refugee Studies, Research on Latin America & the Caribbean, and the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies.
