Political Science

Welcome to Political Science!

Political Science involves the study of government, politics, and public policy both within the United States and in other settings around the world. We are a small program, but we offer courses in American government and politics, public policy and administration, political theory, comparative politics, and international relations. The faculty in the program are active in scholarly research and publication, and are also dedicated to teaching.

In addition to the workings of government and the exercise of power, in all courses we try to develop important skills in critical thinking and analysis, and in communication of ideas. We believe these skills are essential for careers in law, government, business, journalism, and politics.
