Overview

Bachelor of Arts in Political Science

Political Science is concerned with the study of political actors, institutions and processes that affect daily lives.

The expertise of the faculty spans several areas of the study of politics, including Canadian government at all levels, comparative government of Europe, the US and the developing world, modern and contemporary political behavior, and international politics, among others. 

In the best tradition of liberal arts education, many of the students take political science because of their deep interest in public affairs. 

Other proceed to graduate school, or to careers in journalism, law school, public service, political parties, consulting, active politics, foreign affairs, or international development. 

The department also offers students opportunities for extra-curricular activities through the Political Science Club and the Peace Garden Conference. 

The student-run Club organizes talks, debates and participation in model United Nations at other universities. 

The annual conference held in the Peace Gardens is a get-together of students from Brandon University and Minot State University who discuss papers and socialize, fostering in a small way Canadian-American relations.

There are 3 options of this program: 3 years duration, 4 years duration and 4 year (Honours).
