The Political Science program from University of Missouri–St. Louis trains students to become independent researchers who may apply their skills in the academic, government, non-profit, and business worlds.

Students master the skills to frame researchable questions that make original contributions to empirical and theoretical knowledge about problems in politics.

Key facts:

Students learn to rigorously specify cause-effect relationships, and to master techniques for marshalling evidence using quantitative and qualitative methods to test competing hypotheses about problems in politics.

The program is strong in the areas of urban politics, policy processes and institutions, American political behavior, political economy, comparative politics and international relations. Our public policy focus encourages students to adopt a multi-disciplinary perspective and training that cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries.
