Political Science & Public Administration


It is the mission of the Department of Political Science and Public Administration to provide the highest quality academic programs that our resources allow in service to our majors and minors as well as to the multitude of students that we serve through General Education and CASSH Degree Program Core course offerings. 

Beyond this, the department embraces its obligation to create a climate that stimulates learning, thinking, scholarship and professional development for students and faculty. Political Science and Public Administration further endeavors to engage in scholarship and service activities that exemplify the Wisconsin Idea of the university giving back to the citizens of Wisconsin.
