Welcome to the Political Science Department’s website. We are an intellectually diverse department with teaching and research interests that range from voting behavior in Egypt to genocide in Africa. We employ research methods that range from documentary research in archives to the analysis of data through advanced statistical techniques.
The knowledge we gain from our research informs both our writing and our teaching, as we communicate our knowledge to undergraduates. We aim to provide undergraduates with a full range of courses about politics in Egypt and in countries around the world, and the relationships between countries that enables our students to be more informed and effective citizens. A major degree in political science reflects an ideal liberal arts education as it combines exposure to a wide variety of modes of reasoning and analysis ranging from philosophical thinking in political theory courses to statistical analysis in Egyptian and comparative politics. Graduates with a major’s degree in political science have gone on to distinguished careers in business, law, journalism, and in many other careers.
