The Political Science Newsletter highlights the experiences of our students, the accomplishments of alumni, and recognizes the research and publications of our faculty.
To bring the world here and to take learning outside of the classroom, our engaged faculty and students are very active. To cite just a few examples: Prof. Axelrod worked with several political science majors on a symposium discussing the European migration crisis; Prof. Gray brought to campus a specialist in human rights & trafficking; Prof. Laatikainen took a group of poli sci majors to visit the United Nations headquarters in nearby New York City.
Our students gain invaluable experience by pairing their campus studies with internships nearby and in Washington, D.C. Jazmine Javier, for example, is a Farmworker Outreach Intern on Long Island with Rural and Migrant Ministry. Joseph Orlando interned in Washington, D.C. with Congresswoman Nita Lowey. (Read more about student internships.)
We are also proud to send poli sci students to national and international conferences. (Read George Giakoumis’ account of his experience at the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference in Annapolis, Maryland.)
It’s a bittersweet moment for department faculty members when we see our beloved students graduate and leave Adelphi. But, it is with great pride that we watch our accomplished alumni go out into the world and use their political science degree to do interesting and important work. (See alumni highlights.)
