Welcome to the UBC Department of Political Science. We are a community of diverse scholars who are actively engaged in timely and innovative research that gets mentioned in the media more than any other Department in the Faculty of Arts. Our faculty members are affiliated with numerous Centres and Institutes on campus and have been actively engaged in other leadership roles at UBC. We endeavor to create a respectful and open-minded intellectual community of faculty, staff and students.

We are committed to excellence in our undergraduate and graduate teaching. An exceptional number of our faculty have won teaching awards, and we pride ourselves on creating a supportive, innovative,  rigorous and engaged learning environment that includes numerous experiential and community service learning opportunities. Our graduate and undergraduate students are successful in winning top-tier scholarships and recent graduates can be found in leadership positions in the public and private sectors. Many of our PhD graduates have been successful in securing tenure-track faculty positions and prestigious post doctoral fellowships, as well as other fulfilling academic and non-academic careers.

Our emphasis on scholarly excellence and innovation in teaching creates a unique intellectual community and we invite prospective students to learn more about us and visit our Department. We encourage members of our community which includes our alumni to join in the variety of events hosted by the department this year.
