Civilizations and societies are shaped by how different people and religions view God, our ultimate purpose and how we should live. In this program, you’ll examine first what God intended for creation, and then explore how Christians can be co-labourers in societies where ideologies may be different than your own. The tools of labourers for global justice include an in-depth study of politics and economics, but are not limited to them. Redeemer’s interdisciplinary approach to politics and international studies uniquely prepares you for traditional avenues of service, development, politics, and international markets and situates them in the contexts of history, political and economic theologies, world literature and music, the forces and institutions of civil society, our markets and our life together.
The Politics and International Studies program does not have program-specific requirements for admission.

" My studies at Redeemer provided just the right mix of theory and practical learning that has prepared me to ably transition between political roles in federal and municipal politics. I recall a particular political science exam requiring me to outline the legislative process. Less than 3 months later I was in Ottawa working full-time for a Member of Parliament and using that knowledge to develop a Private Member’s Bill. I encourage political science students to take advantage of opportunities to participate in an internship, volunteer on a campaign or attend the Laurentian Leadership Centre. Ever since Redeemer, hands-on experience has paid off and continues to do so. "
