Welcome to the new web page for the Department of Political Science. In these pages, we will answer your questions such as:

We will also introduce you to the members of the political science department, highlighting their areas of specialization and interest. You will see that political science is a broad field that teaches students to identify problems, conduct research and investigate options, and apply potential solutions.
