Our distinguished faculty, which comprises both full-time professors and a cadre of seasoned adjuncts direct from the highest levels of politics, communications, and advocacy, works to offer students an innovative academic approach. Our Washington, DC connections mean that our students learn not only in the classroom but also in the campaign offices, legislative suites, lobby shops, consultancies, and news bureaus that shape the political realm both here and abroad.
