About

The B.A. Major in Political Science of Kwantlen Polytechnic University offers the chance to explore the political world through an innovative suite of offerings that combines a solid foundation in scholarship with 'hands-on' learning opportunities in debate, diplomacy, and policy. 

Overview

The Bachelor of Arts Major in Political Science of Kwantlen Polytechnic University  is designed with a special focus on emerging power dynamics at the national, trans-national, and global levels, and is therefore an ideal choice for those with a serious interest in engaging with the many dimensions of power in the modern world.
