Research interests of our faculty range from the study of local elections and legislative behavior to international environmental politics and social movements.  Faculty research spans all the traditional sub-fields in political science, but the distinctive dimensions of our department are best viewed by examining the research clusters around which faculty research interests coalesce and the intradisciplinary and interdisciplinary workshops sponsored by the department.  These events attract faculty and graduate students from all subfields.
