Educating Curious and Engaged Citizens.
Our undergraduate and graduate degree programs train students for successful careers and civic engagement.
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.
