Applying for Admission

Entry into the program is competitive and possession of the minimum requirements for entry does not guarantee admission.  Applicants should have at least a strong B+ average in their third and fourth year courses, and have graduated with an honours degree or equivalent at an approved university.  An honours graduate in a program other than political science and general degree graduates may be admitted if evidence justifying admission is offered; however, a program of appropriate preparatory studies (qualifying year) may be required of such applicants.  Honours graduates in political science may also be required to successfully complete additional undergraduate courses before they are admitted to the master's program.

Application Deadline: January 15 for first consideration; applications will be accepted until the program is full.
