Political Science

We are committed to students

Political science trains you to apply concepts and theory to real-world problems, to synthesize disparate and complex ideas, to communicate in diverse ways and to debate ideas passionately and respectfully. We are committed to teaching students to learn, so that they're equipped to be engaged citizens and leaders, able to respond with others to the critical issues of our time.

Message from the Chair

"Political Science at the University of Alberta is one of Canada’s leading departments, on the cutting-edge of the discipline, with outstanding faculty whose research traverses traditional fields and engages diverse interdisciplinary methods and ideas. We are proud of our commitment to excellence in teaching and mentoring, from students in our BA, through our Honours program, to our three MA programs, our PhD, and our Postdoctoral Fellows. A lively department, we are always asking how our research connects with topical issues and with the communities of which we are a part. We invite you to explore what we have to offer. Welcome!"
