Covid-19 Information for the Campus Community

To ensure the health and safety of our campus community and to prevent the risk and spread of COVID-19, the University will continue to operate with some employees required to be physically present on campus and others required to work off-campus in a virtual mode.  Learn more University updates

Political Science Updates

The health and safety of our faculty, staff and students remain our number one priority.

Until the current provincial lockdown is lifted, the department will be operating remotely. Staff will respond to your email inquiries during our regular office hours, 8am-4pm.

When the lockdown is lifted, the department will be open from 10am - 2pm, Monday - Friday. The main office doors will remain locked even while staff are present to help control access and assure physical distancing. If you need to speak with someone from the main office please knock and someone will come to the door. Please note that staff are not regularly monitoring their office phones; we ask that email be used to contact them initially.

For course specific inquiries, please contact your instructor, and watch for updates sent through OWL.
