The study of power — what it is and who gets it, how it’s used and how it’s abused. Political science is the study of government institutions and political behaviour – the authorities and power that shape our lives.
Why study political science at CapU?
Along with understanding power and the role it plays locally, nationally, and internationally, political science students acquire polished research skills and effective oral and written communication skills — all very much in demand in the new global economy.
These skills and understanding prepare our students for careers in fields as varied as journalism, law, business and banking or urban and regional planning. They’re also essential for those who enter politics, looking to bring about change in their community, province or at the federal level.
