Welcome to Political Science at UConn
The Political Science department studies how the political process shapes the choices we face as a community of citizens. Through our undergraduate program, we hope to provide students with the 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. Department faculty are involved in cutting-edge research and innovative teaching.
