Celebrating 75 Years of Excellence in Political Science
On April 1, the Department will host a special celebration to mark our 75th anniversary at UConn.
The UConn Department of Political Science studies how the political process shapes the choices we face as a community.
We offer academic programs that bridge the humanities and social sciences. Our cutting-edge research reflects our commitment to methodological and intellectual openness and diversity. Our community provides a bedrock for academic exploration and intellectual engagement at the University.
Students can pursue a major, minor, or fast-track master's in political science.
Our department offers Ph.D., master's degree, and graduate certificate options.
Our researchers expand boundaries and bring their knowledge to the classroom.
