Prospective Students

Welcome to the Political Science Graduate Program at SFU

Our graduate programs boast small class sizes and faculty-to-student ratio giving MA and PhD students many opportunities to interact and work with various faculty members over the course of their studies. There are regular Teaching Assistantship and Research Assistantship opportunities for our students combined with the close links to various research centres and the opportunities that arise from living in a global city.

Our MA students benefit from a variety of options for how they complete their degree including paid co-op opportunities.

Our PhD students thrive with close relationships with their senior supervisor and committee members. They enjoy flexibility in creating their curriculum and research collaborations.
