The Department of Political Science provides a broad selection of opportunities for its majors to work on faculty-led Creative Inquiry research teams. In the past, students have participated in research teams focused on ethnic violence and civil wars, congressional voting, U.S.-China relations, presidential rhetoric, Canadian politics and local government. Several students have presented their research at major political science conferences including the American Political Science and the Midwest Political Science Associations’ annual conferences, as well as the “Posters on the Hill” conference sponsored by the Council on Undergraduate Research. A few of our undergraduates have even published their research with faculty in leading political science journals.
