The Political Science Department at Rutgers is internationally known for its faculty in American Politics, Comparative Politics, Gender and Politics, International Relations, Political Theory, and Public Law. Our department engages broad questions about such topics as race and inequality, causes of war, how voters decide, and what influences government decision-making, both in the United States and abroad. Our faculty are frequent contributors to public debates, providing expert analysis and sharing academic knowledge with the public.

The department runs the Center for the Experimental Study of Politics and Psychology and has close ties to the Eagleton Institute of Politics and its Center for Public Interest Polling. Several of our faculty and former graduate students are affiliated with the Center for American Women and Politics, and our graduate program is the only one in the nation to have a major field of study in Women and Politics. The Rutgers Women and Politics program is currently celebrating its 30th year. The department offers an undergraduate major and minor, a master’s degree in UN and Global Studies, and a competitive PhD program that trains students for careers in academia and research.
