Political science is the systematic study of power and authority, especially in the public realm, and our faculty members work in all of the subfields of the discipline. Many of our faculty are also active in a number of other programs, including the North American Studies Program (NASP), the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), and the Balsillie School of International Affairs (BSIA), including their Masters in International Public Policy (MIPP) and PhD in Global Governance (PhGG) programs. We invite you to browse our website and the various activities in which our faculty and students are currently engaged.
