Department of Political Science

Welcome to the Department of Political Science at UM-Flint.

We are committed to teaching as the primary goal of any academic institution. The faculty is engaged in research on politics from several vantage points: theory, policy, and comparative and historical perspectives. We seek to inspire a commitment to broad social and political goals, and to systematic thinking and analysis.

The Department offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science, as well as an Honors degree program. Faculty members conduct research and offer courses on US politics and public administration, political theory, international relations and on politics, society and economy of major world regions.

This site contains information on programs and courses, introduces the faculty, and provides useful web resources for exploring politics.
