Understanding politics and government is a long-standing human interest, going back thousands of years. In the contemporary world, understanding politics and policy is one key to successful, peaceful, and prosperous national and global civil society.
All of us in the Politics and Government are excited by these topics and are glad you are joining us. Our degrees prepare you for research, teaching, and work in government and nonprofits/NGOs, whether domestic or international.
Further, we sincerely enjoy interacting with you, the upcoming researchers in these areas. In fact, our graduate Political Science program was ranked Number 2 in the nation among graduate Political Science programs for “faculty responsiveness and support outside of the classroom.”
So be sure to talk to the faculty:
·Students specializing in American Politics should especially talk to Jean Schroedel and Michael Uhlmann (offices on CGU campus, second floor of Harper East)
·Students specializing in Political Philosophy should especially talk to Mark Blitz (his office is at CMC)
·Students specializing in Policy should especially talk to Heather Campbell and Hal Nelson (offices on CGU campus, second floor of McManus and Harper East)
