Every political science student at King’s has the opportunity to craft an education that is right for them in and out of the classroom. Our department provides a strong core education across each of the major sub-fields in political science, including Canadian politics, international relations, political theory, comparative politics, public policy and administration.
Students then get to choose specialized third and fourth-year courses where they can explore and refine their interests. Small class sizes allow students to establish unmatched intellectual relationships with their peers and professors. Engage with faculty who bring innovative research into the classroom: Elites and power. Canadian and international law. Social media and elections. Negotiating peace in conflict zones. Surveillance and social control.
Our commitment to real student engagement and experiential learning means that every year our students and faculty travel together to visit sites of real political action – in Canada, the United States and internationally.
