Political Science

Political Scientists study power and how it operates at different levels – among individuals, within and between institutions and individuals, and between countries, international organizations, corporations, societal groups, and individuals in the international arena. Our department hopes students will connect the classroom with the wider issues in global, national, and local politics by attending our many events, trips, and study tours and participating in internships.

The political science faculty are deeply committed to sharing their research and career knowledge working in U.S. politics, political science, international relations and various other experiences with their students. Many have been published in several well-regarded journals and have conducted research in gender politics, race/ethnic politics, intersectionality, elections, economic transformation, labor relations, comparative politics and much more.
