Program overview

The MA in Political Science gives you the opportunity to address some of the most pressing questions in contemporary politics. As political thought shapes the world we live in, you will be encouraged to think about the relations between individuals and political communities from an analytical and critical perspective. Your research will be applicable to academia, public administration, private industry and NGOs. You will have access to inter-institutional research centers and research networks, such as the Center for Immigration Policy Evaluation, engAGE, Latin American Studies Network of Montreal (RÉLAM), and the Groupe de recherche interuniversitaire en philosophie politique de Montréal. Other topics currently being studied by our students include security studies and international relations, the history of political thought and emerging economies.
