Welcome

Interested in Political Science? Come change the world with us.

We are a community of scholars dedicated to improving how people and societies govern themselves. 

Memorial Political Science faculty and students balance quantitative and qualitative methods with cutting-edge political theory as they engage with issues in environmental politics, human migration, international relations, political behaviour, democracy, gender, human rights, Indigenous self-governance, social movements, and public policy. Our department offers a breadth of undergraduate and graduate courses taught by some of the leading experts in Canada.

We are situated on the traditional territories of diverse Indigenous groups, and we acknowledge with respect the diverse histories and cultures of the Beothuk, Mi’kmaq, Innu, and Inuit of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Please explore this website to learn more about our faculty and programs at the Memorial University Campus in St. John’s, NL.

(Students from the Grenfell and Labrador campuses should consult their own campus websites.)
