Politics is principally about human beings coming together to collectively advance their common interest. In its best form, it is democracy whereby citizens have relatively equal influence over the decisions that affect the whole community, including themselves. In essence, politics is about human freedom. The Political Science Department is committed to these core values in its teaching and in its curriculum.
Through innovative teaching by our faculty, including debates, simulations, and dynamic discussions, our students have the opportunity to address these and many other fundamental questions about politics and public policy, in the U.S., other countries and the international system.
