Politics is about making choices. It’s about leading change, fighting for justice, bridging differences, and building community.

The political science program at the University of New Haven will develop your leadership, critical thinking, and networking skills. You'll take courses where you'll do research with real policymakers, you'll discuss current events over coffee, or participate in the department-advised Model United Nations program and Political Science Organization. And you'll have access to a variety of internship opportunities in Washington, D.C., New York and Hartford


Don't just take our word for it: the evidence is in seeing our students and professors in action. Right here on this page we'll post weekly collections of our widely-varied posts using the widget below. You can join the conversation on various social networks using the hashtag #UNHPoliSci
