Political Science / Science politique

Political Science / Science politique


We examine much more than just theories and abstract concepts – we discuss the major issues of our times, including democracy, human rights, peace and security, the environment, the fight against poverty and more.

Our program employs dynamic, innovative teaching methods in small classrooms. Our bilingual or trilingual international degree options will position you well in a competitive global marketplace.

We’ll set you up for success

Our graduates’ success extends far beyond our walls: they get into some of the best graduate programs in political science around the world. They also succeed in the national and international political arena as journalists, United Nations policy analysts, lawyers and more.

Nous allons bien au-delà des théories et des concepts abstraits, et examinons les grands enjeux de notre temps comme la démocratie, les droits de la personne, la paix et la sécurité, la lutte contre la pauvreté, l’environnement, et bien d’autres questions.

Notre programme utilise des méthodes d’enseignement dynamiques et novatrices, dans de petites classes. Nos options de diplôme international bilingue ou trilingue vous prépareront à réussir sur un marché mondial compétitif. 

La réussite de nos diplômés dépasse largement le cadre de notre collège : ceux-ci sont admis dans certains des meilleurs programmes en science politique du monde. Ils réussissent aussi sur la scène politique nationale et internationale, comme journalistes, analystes de politiques pour les Nations Unies, avocats, et dans d’autres professions.
