Welcome to the Cal Poly Political Science Department
In our undergraduate and graduate programs, students study government, politics, and policy, develop and refine their communication and analytical skills, and become informed, active citizens in a diverse global context.
We boast university and college award winners in teaching, research, and community service. Students will learn from an outstanding faculty who employ a variety of teaching methods, instructional approaches, and interdisciplinary orientations.
