We offer a twelve-month MA degree in all areas of the discipline. The objective of our MA program is to refine and hone critical and analytical skills, primarily through course work and a major piece of written work.
Completion of the MA in Political Studies at Queen's requires students to take six half-courses and complete a Master's Research Project by the end of the spring/summer term.
We accept approximately 20 students into our MA program each year. Applicants must have a 4-year undergraduate degree in political science or equivalent, minimum B+ average. Most students who are accepted for the MA program can count on being offered a competitive package of financial assistance.
