This is a time of heightened political engagement and tension, and faculty members in the University of Missouri–St. Louis’ Department of Political Science have been valued by news organizations across the state and beyond trying to make sense of the moment.
Those professors share that same expertise in their classrooms every day, whether in person or online, helping students understand and address key issues impacting society.
The ratings website Learn.org recently ranked UMSL No. 12 nationally on its list of the best online political science bachelor’s degree programs.
“Our faculty are engaged in helping students better understand public policies both large and small, and that applies to an online environment too,” said Professor David Kimball, interim chair of the Department of Political Science. “We are dedicated to preparing our students to better understand, communicate, solve, and lead on the urgent issues that challenge all of us.”
