About

The Department of Political Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara offers five fields of study: American politics, international relations, comparative politics, political theory, and politics of the environment as well as one non-examination field, methodology.

Overview

Program Details

Are democracies with only two political parties more representative than those with many parties? How can governments respect diverse ethnic, racial, and religious identities, and still promote bonds of common citizenship? What should be the role of the United States in an increasingly interdependent global economy? These are the types of questions that political scientists explore, but they also represent issues that require ordinary citizens to make informed judgments. 

At the University of California, Santa Barbara We offer a master degree in Political Science.
