Political Science at the University of Hawaiʻi

E komo mai. The Department of Political Science at UH Mānoa focuses on the study of political power. A genuinely international department, our students and faculty are diverse, and embody UH’s mission to be a “globally-connected Hawaiian place of learning.” We stand out in the fields of alternative futures, comparative politics, Indigenous politics, international relations, law and policy, and political theory.

We offer small student-centered classes and help students become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and effective communicators. Students learn to identify ways that political power shapes and is shaped by individuals, communities, social movements, corporations, nations, and other forces. Our curriculum promotes the acquisition of knowledge and skills demanded by professional employers. Our graduates enter a range of exciting careers, including but not limited to journalism, government, law, education/academia, and research.
