Welcome to the Graduate Program

The Political Science department at SFU offers both MA and PhD programs in an environment that encourages intellectual growth. Our faculty members have diverse research interests and strong links across Canada and internationally helping to create an active research community in the department. Our commitment to teaching and high faculty-to-student ratio ensure that small seminars are the norm and that graduate students work closely with faculty members.

SFU has been recognized as one of the best comprehensive universities in Canada by successive reviews in the annual Maclean’s University ranking of universities. This reflects our high ratings on research grants and awards, new library acquisitions, the caliber of our students, and SFU’s excellent reputation across the county.

“We welcome applications from prospective graduate students with a background in either Political Science or a related field. We also welcome domestic as well as foreign students. I hope you'll consider joining our vibrant community of graduate students, faculty members, and staff. If you have any questions, just send me an email, and I'll be happy to respond.”
