About Us

Welcome to Political Science

Welcome to the home page of the Department of Political Science at NC State. The department is part of the School of Public and International Affairs in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.

We offer B.A. and B.S. degrees. Students can also choose to concentrate in four areas--American Politics, Law and Justice, International Politics or Public Policy. Our majors acquire important analytical and problem-solving skills and oral and written competencies. They have gone on to top graduate and law schools and built successful and rewarding careers at home and abroad in both the public and private sectors.

We have an outstanding faculty. The eleven tenure-track members teach in all of the discipline's subfields. They publish regularly and have received Ph.Ds from top institutions. We are supported by a number of well-qualified adjuncts who have experience in academia, government and the law.
