The course and credit requirements for each program varies, and students are therefore advised to seek information and advice from the Department by the end of their first year to ensure that they build a program of study that satisfies the requirements for graduation.

If you are considering a Political Science program, you should carefully read our undergraduate Curriculum Guide to understand the subfields of the discipline and the sequence of course offerings from first year through to graduation.

Advising is recommended for all Major and Honours students before classes begin.
