Department of Government

”The method of political science is the interpretation of life; its instrument is insight, a nice understanding of subtle, unformulated conditions.” – Woodrow Wilson

In the Department of Government, we seek to become more conscious of the ways political forces shape our lives and the lives of the people around us through a rigorous examination of:

  • American politics
  • International relations
  • Comparative politics
  • Political theory

By exploring new cultures, values, ideas and perspectives — from ancient Greek political theory to modern techniques of statistical analysis — you’ll have rich opportunities to investigate human society and understand what it means to be a responsible citizen in today’s diverse world.
