The Department of Political Science is dedicated to the pursuit of academic excellence and diversity. Consistent with the overall mission of Iona College, the department strives to impart to students intellectual curiosity, the tools to assess and solve complex problems, and the skills to become independent, moral, and motivated decision-makers. In the liberal arts tradition, the department employs a wide variety of pedagogical techniques to reach all learners. The department faculty believes that a diverse curriculum composed of the key areas in the field (American government, Comparative Politics, International Relations, Political Theory, and Public Policy) will best prepare students to understand and assess politics both during their time at Iona, and after.
