Political Science Updates

The health and safety of our faculty, staff and students remain our number one priority. Beginning August 31, 2020, the department will be open from 10am - 2pm, Monday - Friday. The main office doors will remain locked even while staff are present to help control access and assure physical distancing. If you need to speak with someone from the main office please knock and someone will come to the door. Please note that staff are not regularly monitoring their office phones; we ask that email be used to contact them initially.

For course specific inquiries, please contact your instructor, and watch for updates sent through OWL.
