Political scientists explore the concerns and issues that animate public life. Using both humanistic and scientific approaches, the Department of Political Science studies how communities attempt to reconcile the claims of justice, power, liberty, and authority. Drawing on history, law, economics, psychology, sociology, and philosophy, political science is a broadly based social science that shares the traditional aims of a liberal arts education while attempting to grapple with the major issues of our time.
