Political science is the study and analysis of possibilities for states and their citizens; the possibility of peace in a war-ravaged country; the possibility of democracy in an authoritarian state; the possibility of economic equity in a capitalist system; and the possibility of harmony in a system of sovereign states.
The study of politics has always been at the centre of an education geared toward sustaining and improving community life. The ancient Chinese, Greeks, and Romans regarded politics as one of the highest forms of human expression. Indigenous peoples all over the world have practiced unique and effective forms of politics for millennia. Whether you know it or not, we all participate in politics.
In this program, you will learn about key political institutions and actors, along with the forces and ideas that work to shape society and influence transformative political action. You will examine the concepts of power, sovereignty, identity, equality, freedom, justice, authority, democracy, ideology, political violence, revolution, globalization, political economy, development, and more.
Algoma U’s four-year Bachelor of Arts in Political Science program focuses on three areas of study:
