About Us

andra teaching

The Department of Political Science supports a comprehensive teaching and research program in service of a global community concerned with good governance, peace, security, and human welfare.

We are committed to theoretically guided, rigorous empirical scholarship that responds to important questions concerning the ways in which political communities function.

We seek to develop globally engaged citizens, innovative members of the workforce and the next generation of inspiring teachers in higher education.
