|Field of Study:||Political Science and Government, General
|Description:||Politics is about power – who has it and how it is exercised by nation-states, individuals, groups, classes, or political parties, and how different interests are reconciled in and between communities. Political science is also concerned with institutions created to govern communities, as well as practices such as voting habits or protests, and how rules, behaviour and culture are created in societies. And since power in society is often dependent upon material resources, political scientists study the distribution of wealth, both within and between nations. Students sharpen their debating skills at the Queen’s Model Parliament; they discuss international issues at the Queen’sModel UN or with the Queen’s International Affairs Association. Politics at Queen’s extends past the classroom.
