Since Political Science is a broad area of inquiry, it is divided into several subfields:

  • Canadian Politics
  • International Relations
  • Political Theory
  • Comparative Politcs
  • Local Government
  • Public Policy & Public Administration

In all of these specialized subfields, your studies will have relevance to today's issues and tomorrow's developments.  Whether you wish to study the theoretical or the practical side of politics, whether you want to master the details of public policy making in Canada or to learn about the implications of globalization, whether you seek to focus your attention on current issues or on the historical background to them, Western Political Science has much to offer you.
