The mission of the department of political science at Rice University is to contribute to the university and discipline through excellence in research, graduate training and undergraduate teaching.
We contribute to the liberal arts education of our undergraduate students with courses aimed at developing their skills in critical and analytical thinking and writing, increasing their understanding of political processes, and encouraging responsible and active citizenship.
We train graduate students in modern techniques of social science research in three substantive areas of political science—American Politics, Comparative Politics, and International Relations—to prepare them for successful careers in academic research.
The School of Social Sciences at Rice University is dedicated to challenging old assumptions, finding answers to tough questions and generating solutions that make lives better.
