University of St. Thomas Department of Political Science

Ad Victorem it Cervisia et Aeternam Gloriam! ;^) The scope of our discipline is broad and diverse, reflected in both the faculty and students of the department.

We introduce our majors to four key sub-fields of Political Science (Political Theory; American Institutions; Public Administration; Quantitative Methodology) and encourage them to enhance their knowledge of each through their upper division studies. All upper-division courses in this major place a premium on oral and written analytical skills and it is common for courses to require both oral and

Congratulations to our 2017 and graduates!


It's getting started!!!


Hey everyone! Today's the day! Please be sure to come out to Axelrad Beer Garden around 1:30 this afternoon to help us celebrate our 2017 PoliSci and MPPA graduates. And thank you to everyone who has been able to make a donation. I still have them coming in and every little bit helps. I will be providing everyone with a few $6 drink tickets that will allow you to choose from beer, house wine, and well drinks, If you still want to make a donation, please send me a private message.

And lastly, I would like to see everyone as yesterday was my last day at UST. It sounds like we have quite a few coming from the classes of '08 thru the present!



15th Annual UST PoliSci Commencement Day Party!

Hi everyone!!!

We know this is last minute, but we were able to pull off a venue after all for our annual commencement day party. I'm about to post the event so keep an eye out.

ALSO – this will be my last hurrah. My last day at UST will be Friday, May 19th. Come say goodbye! I hope to see you after Commencement!

Here is a note from Dr. Taylor:

Please join us on May 20th at 1:00pm for the 15th Annual Political Science Commencement Day Party celebrating the graduation of both our undergraduate Political Science students and our Master of Public Policy and Administration (MPPA) students. We will be at Axelrad Beer Garden this year.

The first round of beer or soft drinks will be provided for free by PoliSci via the generosity of our donors. Hopefully, we can provide more rounds if we can get additional donations to offset the costs.
Please send your donations directly to me or stop by my office. Food will be available for purchase on site.
See you on May 20th!
All the best,
