The Political Science department at the University of Miami provides an extremely well-rounded curriculum for our political science and public administration students. We focus on American politics, comparative politics, international relations, public policy, and political theory. Our department currently serves about 350 undergraduate majors and 90 undergraduate minors. Studying political science at the University of Miami will provide you with new insight into the political processes happening around you daily while also providing you with practical communication and analytical skills.
