Make Curiosity Your Policy
The Department of Political Science
You can go to any college and get a political science degree. You come to UNL’s Department of Political Science to get a unique experience that cannot be replicated.
It starts with our award-winning instructors. You’ll learn from the same professors who led the research and wrote the books taught at other schools. They’re the same professors The New York Times, “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” The Washington Post, CNN and Time Magazine turn to for expertise.
They’re even more accessible to our students, because that’s our culture.
Here, students don’t just learn about research — they're in the trenches, experiencing it.
And there’s no political science department in the country that goes further to combine the social and life sciences.
We create an atmosphere where curiosity is rewarded.
So embrace it.
