Message From The Chair
Welcome to the Department of Political Science at McMaster University. We offer a broad based undergraduate degree in Political Science, and three different Master’s degrees in Political Science, Public Policy and Administration, and International Relations. Our PhD program allows students to specialize in the areas of Comparative Public Policy and International Relations.
Our Department is home to an energetic group of internationally renowned scholars, award winning teachers, and inquisitive and accomplished students. We are large enough to have a critical mass of excellent researchers and teachers, but not so big that students feel lost or alienated from the Faculty. Our administrative staff are professionally competent and helpful, making life as a student in the Department much easier.
On behalf of all of the members of the Department, I invite you to explore our webpages to find the information you need. Students thinking about coming here to study at either the undergraduate or graduate level should begin with our Prospective Students link. Those already here will find useful information under Current Students. More general information about the Department is provided in sections devoted to our Research Strengths, Faculty and Staff listings and News and Events and Political Science Links. If you are unable to find the information you need, please follow the Contact Information link to send us an e-mail or letter.
