Welcome to the Department of Political Science of Case Western Reserve University.

This year the Department of Political Science welcomes two new Visiting Assistant Professors, celebrates the tenth anniversary of the Wellman Hill Public Service Internship Program, and honors two of our alumni who will be awarded prizes during Homecoming 2017.

We have a range of events planned for the Department this year, and we continue to offer excellent courses, funded programs that provide research and career opportunities, and a range of internships and internship support.  We invite you to explore the Department’s webpages to learn about our plans, our degree programs, our courses, our world-class faculty, and our recent accomplishments.

Please see Flora Stone Mather Professor Karen Beckwith’s Letter from the Chair.  Professor Beckwith welcomes comments and insights from our students, alumni, colleagues, and friends from around the world.  She can be reached by email at
