Building on McMaster’s internationally-recognized expertise in legal philosophy and constitutional law, Humanities has introduced an exciting new honours program.

The program fosters a sophisticated understanding of the law and legal institutions, and of the political and moral theories that address the value and justice of these institutions. Students enter the program in Level II and take a wide range of courses on law, policy, global politics, political philosophy and moral theory, feminist jurisprudence, human rights, globalization, international law, and war and peace.
