Overview

Bachelor of Arts - Political Science

Political Science focuses on how societies choose to organize themselves, why they choose those formations, and what the implications of those choices are. 

It examines and investigates the nature of citizenship, power, justice, community, law, and freedom.

The Political Science program at St. Thomas University covers four traditional subfields of the discipline:  

  • Canadian Politics and Government 
  • Comparative Politics 
  • International Relations 
  • History of Political Thought 

Students gain exposure to and knowledge of each of these areas and develop an understanding of the institutional and philosophical dimensions of political life. 

What sets STU’s Political Science Program Apart? 

  • Small, engaging classes that emphasize personal interaction, discussion, and debate.
  • Lectures and seminars are always taught by professors—not teaching assistants—which means students learn from experts in the field.
  • Courses address current issues and controversies against the backdrop of fundamental political questions, which creates a classroom experience grounded in collaborative learning.
  • For-credit and extracurricular experiential learning opportunities are offered that connect with students’ academic and career ambitions.
  • Students benefit from faculty expertise in International political economy, Canadian foreign policy, Canadian Constitutional Rights, law and politics, social movements, political philosophy, and more.
