PhD in political science

The Department offers a top-quality PhD program. Our professors are experienced researchers and their work is published in the very best international journals.

The program is structured so that students can acquire a thorough theoretical and methodological grounding in the first 2 years, and then devote the next 2 years to writing their doctoral dissertations. We offer complete financial assistance to all students enrolled in the program. Students from abroad and from Englis-speaking Canadian provinces are most welcome. All seminars are in French, but papers may be submitted in English.
