Что я буду изучать?

The Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science provides a broad exposure to politics, law and government at the domestic and international levels on a less intensive basis than the Honours degrees. Students can pursue a general interest degree or specialize in one of the five areas of study, including Political Theory, Canadian Politics, Comparative Politics of Developed and Developing Countries, International Relations and Public Policy. Students can also upgrade to the more intensive Honours BA if it suits their academic interests and abilities.

Depth and Breadth of Knowledge

Students will gain a solid understanding of how the field of Political Science approaches the study of various dimensions of political life. The breadth of knowledge required includes the internal organization and working of political institutions and practices, including governance structures, electoral systems, social movements, and historic transformations, as well as an understanding of the state’s relationships to the social world, to other states, and to the global arena. This knowledge is gained alongside the development of skills in careful, analytic reading, thinking, and writing. The undergraduate degree at McMaster deepens students’ grasp of these issues and skills by engaging them in the study of key areas of the discipline while also requiring them to take electives outside the department, so as to see their knowledge and skills within a wider scholarly community.

Knowledge of Methodologies

Students will learn how to find and use information about political institutions, actors, and events and to explore scholarly and other literatures to find arguments and theories relevant to interpreting or explaining these. They will learn how to obtain and manage this information and analysis, with attention to relevance, accuracy, and the efficient use of time, and to transform this information and analysis effectively into written texts or verbal communications.
