Cumulative grade average equivalent to a University of Toronto B+ or better in an appropriate bachelor’s degree program is required. Preference will be given to applicants with outstanding academic records and a strong background in political science. Applicants must provide evidence of a satisfactory background in political science and a second social science. Applicants intending to enrol in a master’s-level economics course must meet undergraduate prerequisites in microeconomics, macroeconomics, and statistics. A satisfactory background in political science means a minimum of five well-distributed courses including at least one relating to development. Admission is competitive. Enrolment in the program is limited, and meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. All applicants are considered on their individual merit by a departmental admissions committee. Applicants lacking an adequate background in political science may be required to complete additional undergraduate courses before being considered for admission. Such work should be undertaken in consultation with the MA supervisor.
