Western is a great place to study Political Science.  Our graduate program ranks as one of the strongest and most diversified graduate programs in Canada.  We are passionate about politics, and our faculty work with students to examine and explore issues that have had or could have a profound impact on shaping the nature of domestic and international society. 

Our graduates go on to pursue careers, nationally and internationally, in university teaching and research, research-oriented positions in government or private agencies, or in a variety of fields such as public service (at all levels of government), law, journalism, business or the not-for-profit sector.
