We prepare well-rounded, concerned citizens for public service, careers in the private sector, or law or graduate school. Our students can choose from a variety of undergraduate programs.
- BA Honours in Political Science
- BA Major in Political Science
- Minor in Political Science
- Minor in Human Rights Studies
Many students have chosen to combine their studies in political science with the experience of studying in one of Concordia's specialized colleges, such as the School of Community and Public Affairs, the Simone de Beauvoir Institute, the Liberal Arts College, and the Loyola College for Diversity and Sustainability.
Our graduates have proceeded to work in such areas as public administration, law, human rights, journalism, and political campaigning. Some have entered competitive politics, and others have found satisfying work with non-governmental organizations or with corporations. The possibilities are wide open, and it is our job to give you the intellectual background to take advantage of them.
Students with a minimum of 24 credits completed and a GPA of 3.3 or above have the option of participating in an internship placement in either the public or private sectors. Normally students secure a relevant internship on their own, however, they are welcome to consult and receive guidance from the Internship Coordinator. Internships offer an exciting opportunity to gain valuable work experience and build career networks while receiving credit. The internship can be taken during any semester (Fall, Winter, Summer).
