Scholarship & Education

We are committed to excellence in both scholarship and education.  The faculty actively conducts research that advances systematic knowledge of domestic and international political processes, behavior, institutions, organizations, public opinion and policy issues. Graduate students learn—through both coursework and by collaborating with faculty—to answer interesting, relevant questions using a variety of appropriate and sophisticated methods.  We have over 600 undergraduate majors, and our curriculum focuses on analytic, communication, and research skills that prepare students for a range of careers in the public and private sectors and in academia.
