Each year, approximately 8-10 candidates are accepted into the PhD program. Our graduates go on to research and teach political science throughout Canada and the world.
Superior applicants, normally understood as students who are at least in the top 10 percent of their graduating class or who have a CGPA of at least 3.5 or its equivalent, will be eligible for admission into the PhD track.
For general information on graduate admissions and application procedures at McGill, see the Graduate Admissions website.
Please note that as of June 2021 GREs will no longer be required or considered for the PhD application.
