About the Political Science Program

Political Science is the study of governments, their institutions, policies, and processes, and the study of people, their beliefs, their decision-processes, their attitudes and behavior. Political Science uses rigorous research methods and scientific perspectives to examine the complex and challenging problems facing United States and all regions of the world. We offer innovative coursework in international relations, public policy, American politics, environmental politics, politics of groups and identity, and comparative politics.
