Great programs. Great courses.
Located under the twin spires of Harrison Hall, we are a large and active department – many of our faculty members have experience working in government and politics. We bring that experience alive in our classrooms.
We also offer a combined BA-MA program.
Our graduate program leads to a Master’s degree in Political Science. Click here to request information about graduate school at Miami.
Our faculty and students conduct research in all aspects of political science and our courses cover important issues and questions of politics, including:
- Constitutional rights and liberties
- American foreign policy
- World regional politics (western and eastern Europe, the Middle East, Latin America, Africa, Asia)
- American presidency and Congress
- Public management
- Political philosophy
- Parties and interest groups

Preparing students for the future.
We encourage student experiences in applied settings through:
- Study abroad
Many of our alumni attend graduate and professional schools; others find careers in business, the Foreign Service, armed forces, federal, state, and local government, law enforcement, lobbying, and non-profit organizations. Some of our alumni serve in Congress, at the White House, and in U.S. embassies abroad, while others are attorneys and business professionals. Others have had successful careers in academia, including the president of a university, deans, and department chairs.
