POLITICAL SCIENCE

Political science is the systematic study of power and authority, especially in the public realm, and our faculty members work in all of the subfields of the discipline. Students are encouraged to explore our program (Honours Political Science), as well as our Legal Studies Option and Research Specialization Option.

Many of our faculty are also active in a number of other programs, including the North American Studies Program (NASP), the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), and the Balsillie School of International Affairs (BSIA), including their Masters in International Public Policy (MIPP) and PhD in Global Governance (PhGG) programs. We invite you to browse our website and the various activities in which our faculty and students are currently engaged.


Laurier Institute for the Study of Public Opinion and Policy (LISPOP)

LISPOP promotes research on public opinion in the political process, and monitors the public opinion and interest group industries, serving as an educational resource to the University and the larger community.
