Department of Political Science

ucr-tower2Welcome to the Department of Political Science at UCR

Our faculty and staff seek to join cutting-edge research with first-rate graduate and undergraduate education. We rank among the very best political science programs in the country in scholarly productivity.

Our faculty have wide-ranging interests spanning all the major fields of political science, exploring topics from the politics of race and identity to the role of the military in political life — and from legislative politics to human rights in theory and practice.

The department’s graduate program emphasizes rigorous and pluralistic methodological training along with a solid education in every branch of political inquiry. Our undergraduate curriculum equips students to confront the most important political questions as citizens, policy-makers, scholars or government officials.

We invite you to explore our website and learn more about us. And feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
