The political science curriculum covers four main areas: comparative politics, international relations, political theory, and U.S. politics. Our introductory courses, at the 100-level, provide students with the foundations for more substantive investigations. Our intermediate courses, at the 200 and 300-levels, expose students to political ideas, institutions, and patterns in the United States and different world areas. Our 400-level courses are designed for juniors and seniors who are ready to pursue their own research projects.
