The Department of Political Science at the University of Minnesota ranks among the top 15 in the United States.
Members of the department's outstanding faculty—from internationally recognized scholars and teachers to rising stars—have long been in the vanguard of the discipline, helping us understand political systems and political life both domestically and internationally. They have earned their reputations observing and analyzing the global political landscape, including political systems in the United States and abroad; researching political belief systems, political attitudes and behavior, and political and social cognition and communication; and studying political tolerance, citizenship, human rights, geopolitical issues, and political participation. Their interests range from why people vote the way they do to how political systems are constituted and how they evolve.
With your tax-deductible contribution we will continue to excel at educating leading teachers and scholars, policymakers, local and national leaders, and global citizens.
