By learning to think critically about relationships of power, you’ll be well-placed to contribute to the public life of your country and the world. Political Science is one of the most popular degree choices at Concordia, with a student body among the most diverse and politically aware in Canada. You’ll find yourself sharing ideas with classmates whose backgrounds represent cultures and political systems from around the globe. You’ll gain insights from prominent national and international academic guest lecturers, as well as politicians and ambassadors.
