The University of Wisconsin Political Science Department is one of the nation’s oldest and most respected programs. Our Department is highly ranked in national surveys, and our award-winning faculty are known for innovative research on the discipline’s most current and important questions. Our dedication to teaching is also apparent: we are one of the largest majors on campus, with a commitment to excellence in undergraduate instruction.
The Political Science Department is located in North Hall, the oldest building on campus. Due to its age, this building is not accessible to individuals with mobility disabilities and does not have an elevator or accessible restroom. The Department is committed to equal opportunity for all students to attend office hours, advising, and other department-related events. Please contact me, Faye Lux at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608.263.1780 if North Hall presents a disability-related barrier to you, and the Department will gladly work to ensure access. If you require a disability-related accommodation for the academic requirements of a Political Science course unrelated to North Hall, please review the “Accommodations for Students with Disabilities information.”
