Courses in Political Science

Political science is the systematic study of governmental and political structures, processes, and policies. This study uses institutional, quantitative, and philosophical approaches. The field is highly diverse, ranging across political theory, comparative government, international relations, American government, public policy, and research methods. Political scientists concentrate on public opinion and voting, organized political behavior, governmental institutions, studies of single countries, comparisons across countries and relations among countries. The field addresses both normative and empirical concerns.

Waitlist Policy for the Political Science Department

Students are strongly encouraged to use the waitlist for any closed Political Science course. Students should register on the waitlist according to their preferred section. Overrides will be issued automatically, in waitlist order (unless a professor asks for a different process in a particular course) up to the first day of class by the department as space becomes available. Students are notified by e-mail and given three days to use the override; the seat may go to an alternate student on the waitlist if the override is allowed to expire. Students should remember that for cross-listed courses, their waitlist position as seen on Wolverine Access is relative to the unit under which they are enrolled. Unused overrides may result in the student being removed from the waitlist completely. No overrides will be issued automatically after the first day of classes.

Michigan in Washington Program

The MIW program offers an opportunity each year for 45-50 undergraduates from any major to spend a semester (Fall or Winter) in Washington. The program provides a chance for students to combine coursework with an internship that reflects each student’s particular area of interest (such as American politics, international studies, history, the arts, public health, economics, the media, the environment and science and technology).
