Considering the graduate program in Political Science?

Here are some recent awards won by our graduate students.

Considering an undergraduate major in Political Science or in Legal Studies?

The Political Science Department offers both

There is a reason we are one of the largest departments on campus.  We’re a comprehensive department at a Research I public university, and our approach to studying and teaching politics features challenges that often lie at the intersections of traditional subfields. What does this mean for you?  If you’re an undergraduate Political Science student, it means our curriculum starts with a focus on political issues and problems and offers you perspectives and theories that help make sense of a complex political world. If you’re a Legal Studies student, it means you are also part of a unique and diverse community. We are the only university in New England to offer a Legal Studies major, and we are one of the most interdisciplinary programs in the College. Our undergraduates are active in the pursuit of internships, undergraduate research and engagement, student clubs and teams, study abroad, and much more. We maintain active networking with the department’s alumni to connect our undergraduates with a range of professionals using their degrees in a remarkable variety of ways.
