Welcome to the website of the Political Science Department at the University of Kentucky. We have established a long tradition of excellent scholarship, effective teaching, and training graduate students to become leading scholars in the discipline. Our faculty consistently publish their work in the best journals and presses and have received dozens of teaching awards. The vibrant graduate program trains students to be both excellent teachers and leading scholars. Our recent placement record has been excellent, with students obtaining positions at schools such as the University of Rhode Island, Nebraska-Kearney, South Carolina and Auburn. Undergraduate students will find a diverse and invigorating curriculum taught by faculty who emphasize critical thinking, research collaboration, and “real world” skills.
