|Western's Political Science Department is known for the outstanding quality of its research and teaching in Democratic Engagement, Global Justice, Urban Politics and Local Governance, and Research Methods. Our faculty offer expertise and training in all of the traditional subfields, such as Canadian Politics, Comparative Politics, International Relations, Local Government, and Political Theory but also value and encourage work that cuts across and challenges those boundaries. Not only do our faculty and students draw upon multiple theories and methods to solve a wide range of pressing domestic and international problems, we also invent new ones to expand the discipline’s analytical and explanatory power. If you share these values and want to acquire the skills necessary to put them into practice, we invite you to apply to our PhD program.
