We are one of the largest majors on campus, with course offerings that span the globe. Our faculty members are active researchers who, through their teaching, seek to develop students who are critical thinkers and effective writers. Our majors go on to work in government, business, law, policy, and non-profits, both here and abroad.
This website is designed to help you find out more about our course offerings, our faculty and their interests, our students, and our alumni. We hope you find what you are looking for. If not, please feel free to contact us.
