The Political Science Program provides a comprehensive understanding of politics. It does so by acquainting students with the literature of the discipline in six areas of specialization:

  • American Government
  • Comparative Politics
  • International Politics
  • Law
  • Political Theory
  • Public Policy and Analysis

Faculty members also seek to engage students in a partnership of research and other scholarly endeavors and in service to the community.
