Political Studies

  • Women and men preparing for careers in journalism, law, business management, international banking, market research, arbitration, urban and regional planning, the foreign service, consulting, labour negotiations, international development, and education enrol in Political Studies courses. So, too, those hoping to bring about change in their own communities in such areas as health, education and the environment, choose politics as their vocation. That's because Political Studies is concerned with power — what it is and who gets it, how it is used and how it is abused. Along with understanding power and the role it plays locally, nationally, and internationally, Political Studies students graduate with excellent research skills and effective oral and written communication skills — all very much in demand in the new global economy.
