Welcome to the Department of Political Science and Global Affairs!

The social scientists in our department teach a diverse array of courses about the politics and people of every region of the world. Our graduates work in the public and private sector. Many have gone on to study law or public administration in graduate school. Please explore the links to find out more about our work and degree programs. We offer a BA major and minor degree in both Political Science and Geography. We support the BA major and minor in International Studies and the minor in Public Administration as well. Feel free to contact me at to learn more about our programs. If I can’t answer your question, I will get you in touch with the professor who can!
