Political Science research

The University of Nevada, Reno is classified as an R-1 Carnegie rated “very high research” institute. Not only does this elevate our University by obtaining high-level experts, but it’s great for our students to engage and participate in research projects with faculty. All of our faculty in the Political Science Department are involved in individual or collaborative research efforts which are widely published by academic presses and in political science journals. Our faculty are supported in their research efforts through funding and other assistance and we encourage our students to get involved in a research project of interest. Take a look at the five political science research areas below and find a faculty member to connect with in that field.
