Undergraduate studies in political science

Political science seeks to understand the impact of decisions and the effects they have on us as individuals and as a society.

We study and focus on critical issues. From Indigenous politics and minority rights, to migration, privacy and surveillance, democracy, and international law.

With us, experiential learning is key. Our students take part in programs like the Model UN, the Model EU and EU tour, and the BC Legislative internship program.
