”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.
