My name is Graham Kerr, and I am a fifth year Political science student here at the University of Guelph. This is my second term with the Political Science Peer Contact team, and I could not be more excited to get this upcoming semester underway. I am a massive sports fan, and you can often find me playing hockey and football in intramural leagues on campus. I am also on the executive board for my fraternity, and work part-time while in school, so clearly I like to keep busy.
Political Science Courses/Experience
Throughout my years at Guelph, I have taken courses within all disciplines of political science, from comparative politics to gender identity politics. Over the past year, I have found an extreme interest in the field of public policy, which my upcoming semester is built around. I have also had several different professors within the major, and can offer advice on teaching styles and course-loads for particular professors.
After I graduate at the end of this upcoming year, I plan to pursue my Masters in Sport Management at the University of Ottawa. I have always been fascinated with the politics behind sports, and eventually want to get into professional player management, and amend the current Collective Bargaining Agreement, where my background in public policy will be of the utmost importance.
What I love most about my degree in Political Science is that it is a degree that can be utilized and applied in several different fields, making it valuable to potential employers. If you have any questions or concerns about classes or professors, please feel free to email me, or follow me on Instagram (@gkerr53), and I would be more than happy to answer your questions.
