Department of Political Science

Welcome to the front page of the Case Western Reserve University Department of Political Science!  Our mission is to provide information about and analysis of the political world both to our students and our local, national, and international communities. 

In our research we craft theory and gather data to understand policy choices and political conflicts.  In our teaching we address a wide array of political institutions and processes. Through community engagement we share our understanding beyond the classroom and academic world.




The Department will resume events at the beginning of the fall 2015 semester.

CWRU is home to a wide array of public affairs programming that may be of interest to the public and to students of political science.

For schedules of some of those events, please see the Affiliated Web Sites linked above.
