Department of Political Science Faculty

  • "Memorial is a place full of engaging, lively, insightful people who care less about egos than making sense of the world around us… it allows you to use your imagination, play with puzzles, explore, and offer new critical insights. The fact that we live in an environment where people are friendly, do not have to drive great distances back and forth to work, not to mention the incredible kayaking, is all a bonus." (Professor)
  • "Wherever possible, I try to stimulate students' interest in politics by using engaging PowerPoint presentations, class discussions, critical thinking exercises, and the occasional guest speaker or video. Offering real-life political examples and a the occasional Newfoundland point of view helps keep things real." (Associate Professor)
