Political Theory

The Political Theory program at the Department of Political Science forms the core of the study of political theory and philosophy at the University of Michigan. There are seven political theorists in this top-ranked and intellectually diverse department, offering its students a rich graduate curriculum and a generous funding structure. The University of Michigan’s extensive research resources and a real commitment to interdisciplinarity make it possible for students to forge creative connections with faculty and programs outside the department. Activities around the theory program also bring together political theorists and other interested scholars from universities in Southeast Michigan.
