These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
The following are minimum requirements for admission to the master’s program. Meeting these minimal requirements alone does not guarantee acceptance. The School of Political Studies also takes into account the number of places available and the student’s aptitude for higher-level research. Students who have a BA with honours in political science or its equivalent with a minimum average of 70 % (B), calculated in accordance with FGPS guidelines, may be admitted directly to the MA program. Students who do not have a BA with honours in political science, but who have a BA with a minor in political science or a BA in a related discipline, and a minimum average of 75 % (B +), may be accepted for a qualifying year, the content of which will be decided in consultation with the director of graduate studies in the political science. An active knowledge of French or English is essential. All students admitted will have to take at least one of their courses in French, and all students must be capable of reading texts in English and French. Candidates must indicate in their application the language in which they plan to take the majority of their courses. Those students who plan to study mainly in English will have to demonstrate in their application an active knowledge of English. All students whose first language is other than English or French must provide proof in their application of their level of competence in both languages. The School of Political Studies reserves the right to require a language test for either language.
