Graduate Program
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 Master’s program in International Public Policy and the PhD in Global Governance at the Balsillie School.
