Program Information
Faculty: School of Graduate studies
Degree: Doctorate
Field of Study: Political Science and Government, General
Description Applicants may be admitted to the PhD program via one of three routes: With an MA: excellent students who have completed an MA degree in political science (or its equivalent) by the time of enrolment. Transfer: in exceptional cases, on the initiative of the Director of Graduate Studies, MA students may be transferred to the PhD program. Such transfers will occur only where a full assessment of an applicant's bachelor's record (or equivalent) was impossible and where that student's instructors concur that the student in question has excelled in the first half of the MA program. Direct-entry: exceptional students who have completed an appropriate bachelor's degree with a concentration in political science by the time of enrolment. Students admitted to the PhD from a bachelor's degree who receive less than an A- average in their first four courses will be recommended to SGS to transfer to the MA program. If the transfer is approved, these students will graduate with a terminal MA, provided their grades meet the requirements for the MA degree.
