About Political Science

About Political Science

Students wishing to do an Honours degree or a Major or Minor Concentration in Political Science should consult with a Political Science Departmental Adviser each year in order to devise a suitable program. Proper selection of courses is required if a student wishes to graduate on time.

Procedure for New Students

Procedure for NEW Students

All new students entering the Political Science Program (including Minor Concentrations) are strongly urged to attend an information meeting scheduled at the end of August. The date and location of the meeting will be posted on the web. Attendance will help students prepare for their session with an adviser. It is the student's responsibility to be in Montreal for the meeting. The following brochures are available on the web: Major and Honours Programs in Political Science and Minor Concentrations in Political Science. It is essential to read through these prior to attending the information meeting.

For All Political Science Students

For All Political Science Students

The brochures Major and Honours Programs in Political Science and Minor Concentrations in Political Science are both available in the Department as well as on the web. Students wishing to have courses taken at other universities counted as satisfying program requirements must bring copies of their transcripts and course syllabi to the Director of the Major or Honours Program or the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Students are not accepted into the Honours Program in Political Science until their second year in Political Science; an exception is made for those in Joint Honours Programs.

As course and personnel changes may have occurred after this publication was prepared, students should not use it to plan their program of studies without first consulting the Department Office for updated information.

In the first year of the program (U1), students are advised to select 12 to 15 credits from at least three of the four main fields of political science. U1 students should normally take courses at the 200-level only. However, those in their second term of U1 may, with the approval of their program adviser, take one 300-level course provided that they have a B+ average in their first term courses and have completed the 200-level prerequisite for the course.

To enter, remain and graduate in Honours, students must achieve/maintain a 3.3 average in their political science courses and more than half of the political science grades must be at the B+ level or higher. According to Faculty regulations, Honours students must maintain a minimum CGPA of 3.00 in general.

To be awarded First Class Honours at graduation, in addition to the Faculty requirement of a 3.50 CGPA, students must achieve a 3.6 average in their political science courses and more than half of political science grades must be at the A- level or higher. All political science courses taken at McGill are counted in determining a student's standing. (The specific criteria are given in the brochure "Major and Honours Programs in Political Science," which may be found on the Department website http://www.mcgill.ca/politicalscience/.) To be awarded Honours at graduation, students must be registered in the Honours program in their final year. At graduation, students' Honours standing will be determined by their overall record in the Honours program.

Students may enter the Honours program at the start of U2.

Required Course (3 credits)

POLI 311 (3) Techniques of Empirical Research

Complementary Courses (51 credits)

51 credits of complementary courses selected with the following specifications.
