In the Classroom

Our faculty employ a diverse range of teaching styles in their classrooms. In course simulations, students become political candidates, members of Congress, or leaders who engage in comparative peace processes. Students develop public awareness campaigns, research-based blogs, or infographics to advance policy agendas in other courses. In Political Data Analysis, students learn to develop their own surveys, work with large data sets, and analyze data. In all our classrooms, we emphasize critical thinking, good communication, and writing fundamentals—skills that carry over into professional life once students graduate.
