Congratulations to MA Student Casey Hunley for receiving the prestigious SSHRC Joseph Armand Bombardier CGS Master’s Award

We are proud that Casey Hunley has received the SSHRC’s Joseph Armand Bombardier CGS Award to pursue her Political Science MA degree at McMaster!

Sep 20, 2017

Casey Hunley did her undergraduate degree at the University of British Columbia focusing on the topics of Canadian electoral ethics, global citizenship, and social movements. Her undergraduate research, “Fostering Relationships and Communication: Integration and the Intangible” was done alongside volunteer work in Vancouver that focused on building community for newcomers through food security programs. These experiences fostered her interest in the manifestations of market fundamentalism in Canadian policy and their effects on policy objectives and implementation. She was attracted to McMaster’s versatile political science program and the faculties accomplishments in public policy research. Through the MA in Political Science program, she hopes to explore different perspectives in social ethics and to build a stronger understanding of the practical underpinnings of policy making in a global context.
Congratulations Casey Hunley on your award and we wish you the best in your studies!
