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 wants 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.
