A Note From the Chair
Greetings! While we had to deal with numerous challenges resulting from the University's
financial situation as well as from the loss of several long-serving faculty members,
overall, we had another great year in Political Science during 2013/2014.
In 2013/14, 10 Political Science Majors graduated with University Honors – a record
number for the department. Five of them achieved the additional distinction of writing
an Honors Thesis. That was a new record as well – motivating us to hold our first
departmental undergraduate research conference in April. Last year, 48 Political Science
students graduated with a B.A. – four of them Summa Cum Laude. 52 of our Political
Science majors made the Dean’s List during the fall of 2013, and 43 in the spring of 2014. As of fall 2014, 36 of our undergraduate majors are enrolled in the Helen Hardin Honors Program.
