Political Science

Welcome from Dave Robertson, the Chair of Political Science!

Welcome to Political Science! We are leaders in scholarship and teaching, and we are dedicated to prepare our students to better understand, communicate, solve and lead on the urgent issues that challenge all of us. Our faculty are energetically engaged in helping our community and our world better understand public issues both large and small. 

Our graduates are doing great things to make a better world. They are leaders of public, nonprofit, and business organizations in the United States and around the globe. Our graduates include elected officials, judges, agency heads, attorneys, corporate public affairs executives, university professors, secondary school officials, foundation officers, and policy advocates.    

Join our community and learn how you too can improve the world—one policy and one community at a time. Drop by the Department of Political Science office (347 SSB) or drop me an email to obtain more information.
