Welcome to the Political Science Research Guide. Here you can find resources from the Library and the web to assist you with classwork and research.
Political Science is the academic study of politics and government. Political scientists study the origin, development, and operation of political systems. They research political ideas and analyze governments, policies, political trends, and related issues.
When you study Political Science, you'll study everything from revolutions to political parties to voting behavior to public policy. You are also likely to explore the political issues inherent to different regions of the world, like the Middle East, East Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe.
