Thank you for your interest in the Justice, Political Philosophy, and Law Honours B.A. Program.

Students who seek to enroll in the Program must complete a Supplemental Application. The deadline for submitting this application is April 30, 2020 at 11:59 PM EST. This form will not be available for submission after this deadline.

Please note, students are required to complete BOTH the MOSAIC component of the application process AND the Supplemental Application. Admissions decisions will be made on the basis of the Supplemental Application, the student’s general cumulative average, and the student’s performance in classes relevant to the themes of the Program. Admissions decisions will be made on a rolling basis. We expect that all decisions will be made by late May.

We expect most applications to come from those who will be second year students at the beginning of the 2020-2021 academic year. There may also be a small number of upper level McMaster students applying to the program. With respect to these advanced students, preference will be given to those who have already completed a number of the Program’s required classes.  We welcome applications from students transferring from other universities. If you are a student coming from outside of McMaster, please feel free to contact us ( and we will be happy to assist you with the application process.

All McMaster undergraduate students and transfer students from other universities who are eligible for the program are encouraged to apply.
