In our time, the Nobel-Prize-winning German author Thomas Mann once wrote, human destiny presents its meaning in political terms. Along these lines, all the questions above are a focus of the political process, whether local, national or global. The Department of Political Science at the University of Connecticut is dedicated to understanding how the political process determines our common future and the choices that we face as a community of citizens. Through our undergraduate program, we hope to provide students with the facts and concepts that will enable them to be active and constructive citizens. Through our graduate program, we aspire to educate future scholars in the tools of our trade, but also a hope to provide them with a broader understanding of how the political process works or maybe should work. To achieve these goals, department faculty are all involved in research programs that enlighten the worldwide community of scholars and make us better teachers as well. And it is the intersection of our research and teaching that helps make us a challenging place to study and learn.
