Collaboration with the University of Calgary
The Department of Political Science has developed a cooperative arrangement with the Department of Political Science at the University of Calgary. Students enrolled in the MA Program at the University of Lethbridge can take graduate courses at the University of Calgary as part of their degree requirements. We can also draw on faculty from Calgary to serve on graduate committees at the University of Lethbridge. Similarly, the Political Science department there can draw on our faculty and resources to help with the delivery of their graduate program. The goal of this collaboration is to improve the experience of students and the quality of graduate studies at both institutions.
Co-operative Education & Internships Option
The Co-operative Education/Internship Option is available to students for the Master of Arts (MA) and Master of Science (MSc) programs. Co-operative education is an educational model that formally integrates academic study at the master’s level with relevant, paid work experience in appropriate employment fields such as government, institutions, and industry. The University, the employer, and the student are in partnership to ensure an enriching experience toward the student's professional development.
