We offer a truly unique learning environment. Our faculty highly values student diversity as well as diversity in the curriculum by specifically including material on and from the perspectives of historically marginalized groups such as women, American Indians, Black Americans, immigrants, Latinos/as, LGBTQ people, and others. We also value international perspectives and students, whose participation in our classes greatly enriches the experience of students and faculty, and we strongly encourage our students to internationalize their experiences by immersing themselves in other culture by studying abroad.

The Department The Department of Political Science is a small department, with 8 tenure-track faculty and 150-200 undergraduate students. We also offer an MPA degree and maintain about 20 MPA students on average. Our award-winning faculty bring rich and diverse scholarship into the classroom, engaging students in questions of ethics, power, identity, representation, policy, law and governance, at the state, national and global levels. Our integrated curriculum challenges students to develop critical thinking, communication, and research skills, preparing our graduates for citizenship and leadership, post-graduate study, and diverse employment opportunities.
