Department Home page

In Political Science we explore current data, historical studies, and theoretical approaches to formulate standards for judging the quality of political life and the performance of institutions. We are concerned with how societies are governed and the consequences for human welfare as they relate to various structures, processes, and beliefs. We strive to contribute to a just, compassionate, and responsible political order and prepare our graduates for careers in politics and government, business and finance, law, international relations and many other fields.
