Student clubs

Undergraduates of Political Science (UPS)

This student-run organization operates year-round. Join them for events like games nights, mixers, course planning and career workshops, debates and discussions.

Membership is open to all students taking at least one political science course throughout the year. Find them on  or Instagram.

Model United Nations (MUN)

Model United Nations (MUN) is an academic simulation of the United Nations. Join the club to learn about the international community and how the member states of the world interact.

In MUN, students take on the role of a diplomat, and are expected to represent their nation's foreign policy on a variety of international issues. During the simulations, students are expected to research and promote their nation’s foreign policy to reach consensus on resolutions.

UVic MUN members have participated in conferences like UBCMUN (Vancouver), NWMUN (Seattle) and NMUN (New York). They also host VICMUN, a conference at UVic each Fall term for local high school students.
