UVic's Political Science alumni are big thinkers, social leaders and change makers.

Who we are

Our alumni have ventured forth from UVic to explore a wide range of fulfilling life experiences and career paths including advanced study in fields such as law, medicine, education, and psychology; employment in universities, hospitals, mental health organizations, and government agencies. Many former students have maintained connections with our department and we delight in learning of their personal and career successes.

UVic Alumni Association

The UVic Alumni Association is dedicated to supporting UVic graduates in staying connected with one another and being aware and involved in the university's growth and achievements. The Alumni Association also offers a wide range of benefits and services to its members. We encourage you to stay connected.

Keeping in touch

Keeping in touch with your fellow alums from Political Sciences is a great way to network for career advancement and to keep up old friends and connections from your days on campus. Through the Torch, UVic's Alumni Magazine, Keeping in Touch notes are collected by the UVic Alumni Services.

Entries for Keeping in Touch usually come to us either by post or via e-mail. Alumni services also compile entries from other public sources such as newspapers and magazines or news releases.

But news of births, marriages and elections to office are encouraged, as are photographs. Obituaries are also accepted. All entries are edited for style, clarity and length
