If you are applying to the MAJOR or HONOURS Program for September 2021 entry, you must meet the following requirements by August 31, 2021.
Please note that admission is not automatic to either the MAJOR, COMBINED or HONOURS program in Political Science. Due to a limited number of spaces, some applicants who satisfy the minimum prerequisites may not be admitted.
If applying to the HONOURS Program, you will be asked to include your resume and a 250-word supplementary statement. Topics to consider: your specific interests in political science, your interests outside the discipline (including your outside reading), and your ultimate career plans. This information is an essential part of your application. If you are not admitted to the HONOURS Program you will automatically be considered for the MAJOR Program. (See the UBC Calendar under Political Science for a description of the HONOURS Program and the minimum qualifications for applying.)
