On the research front, the study of political science has a rich and long tradition here at Indiana University; indeed, we recently celebrated our first centennial. That tradition is reflected in a diverse department that trains its Ph.D. students in all the major subfields of the discipline. In the course of their training, IU doctoral students are exposed to a range of subfields and methods, as well as extensive coursework in other departments.
Our department is serious about developing first-rate instructors. Students are expected to develop and teach their own courses. One of our distinctions is that we regularly offer in-house teaching workshops and allow many of our students to acquire extensive experience teaching their own courses. We also encourage our students to take advantage of other campus resources to become better teachers. For instance, some of them work closely with staff at the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning to further hone their teaching skills. Our students have also frequently serve as graduate assistants the Indiana Statistical Consulting Center. Most of our students serve as Associate Instructors for a variety of undergraduate courses and some offer their own.
