You will be a part of small classes, with an average of less than 30 students. We pride ourselves in our diverse learning environment where faculty and students interact, ask questions, and deliberate about politics, government, and citizenship. You will be inspired to develop valuable analytic, communication, and research skills while studying comparative political processes, policies, behavior, institutions, organizations, and public opinion.
Our graduates are working at the highest levels of local, national, and international government, in law and politics, and across the business world.
We are dedicated to delivering a robust academic experience in the heart of Indiana's capital city—Indianapolis.
