Political Science

Mission & Vision


The Political Science Department of the California State Polytechnic University Pomona, a collaborative learning community, seeks positive and significant impact in the world by:

  • Acquiring and conveying substantive knowledge about politics, government and public life,
  • Encouraging our students to develop certain critical skills necessary for informed, active participation in political communities, and
  • Facilitating and encouraging experiential learning as a complement to the traditional pedagogies of the academy.


Our vision is not just to learn and teach about civic life, but also to engage in and encourage others to belong in civic life.
