Master of Arts in Political Science

The political science graduate program at the the University of New Brunswick offers a joint master's program on the Fredericton and Saint John campuses.  Courses of study and research are designed to meet the needs and interests of each student.

Our program is small enough to allow students to be treated as individuals and to have close contact with faculty, yet large enough to offer a diverse, active intellectual community spanning both campuses.  Financial assistance in the form of Teaching Assistantships, Research Assistantships, and scholarships are awarded by UNB on the basis of merit and need.

Graduate studies in political science at UNB provide students the opportunity to read widely, think deeply and critically about political issues, and develop their scholarly voices. Graduate students are encouraged to explore both applied, 'real world' political problems, and the theoretical and conceptual tools that political science can bring to bear on these problems.

Graduates of UNB's Master of Arts in Political Science have built their careers locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.  Some have gone on to doctoral programs, law school and other professional programs; while others have embarked on careers with government, international organizations, non-profit organizations, and public service groups.
