The Department provides courses in the four central sub-fields within the discipline:
- American Politics,
- Comparative Politics,
- International Relations, and
- Political Theory.
Our specialty is in anchoring our program to the elements of a Kalamazoo College education. In addition to providing knowledge about the political world, our course offerings are designed to give shape to and reinforce study abroad, internships and independent research. We are scholars of politics and we are also engaged in public affairs, primarily in efforts to obtain social justice. So, too, are many of our students.
Take a look and we hope you will agree -- we are a department on the move.
