For well over a century, students interested in politics have completed graduate and undergraduate programs in our department and made their mark around the globe. Each year, their ranks are expanded by several hundred undergraduate majors and specialists, more than 40 MA graduates, and about 20 completed PhDs.

As in the past, they go on to become leaders in all avenues of life. Their voices are heard in government, NGOs, business, the arts, law, universities, public policy, and the media. Political Science alumni are always welcome at the many special events that the department sponsors or co-sponsors — public seminars, conferences, social events.

Community Friends of Political Science

The department is keenly aware that many of the public seminars, lectures, and conferences that it sponsors have a broad interest in the community.

Whether a graduate of the department or not, anyone interested in keeping abreast of such developments is warmly welcomed to contact us to ensure regular notification of events.
