Undergraduate Programs

Our outstanding faculty, innovative research and applied approach to learning are among the many reasons for studying politics, legal studies and north american studies at Laurier. We encourage our students to develop transferable skills through experimentation, simulation and experiential exercises, as well as interactions with experts and practitioners. In addition to a full suite of programs in political science, our department is also home to two interdisciplinary programs: the North American Studies Program and the Legal Studies Option. Our faculty are affiliated with the Laurier Institute for the Study of Public Opinion and Policy, the Balsillie School of International Affairs and the Centre for International Governance Innovation in Waterloo. In addition to offering strong undergraduate and graduate programs, our department contributes to the interdisciplinary Masterís program in International Public Policy and the PhD in Global Governance at the Balsillie School.

Ontario's Municipal Election: A Post-Mortem Analysis

Nov 5 - The Department of Political Science will be hosting its second event in its new, Politics in Practice Series, on Wednesday November 5, 2014 from 2:30pm to 3:50pm in Arts Building, Room 1C16. This panel discussion will focus on the aftermath of the Ontario Municipal Election.†

Dr. Andrew Sancton (Western University), Prof. Gabriel Eidelman (University of Toronto), and Dr. Debra Chapman (WLU) will be discussing the rise and fall of certain municipal politicians, whether the politics in our cities have changed as a result of this election, and what we can expect in terms of policy and decision-making.

All are welcome!
