Political Science

The Department of Political Science offers a wide range of courses designed to equip undergraduate and graduate students with advanced understanding about political life in the United States and abroad. Students develop conceptual, communication, and methodological skills, examine normative and analytic theories with which to study contemporary and emerging public issues, and develop an awareness of how political science relates to the other social sciences and the humanities.
