Political science faculty are actively engaged in a diverse set of research enterprises. Our expertise can be placed within the broad fields of political science (American Politics, Comparative Politics, International Relations, Political Theory, Public Policy, and Quantitative Methodology). However, many of the faculty engage in research that crosses disciplinary lines. The George Washington University supports those research endeavors through centers and institutes.

Many of our faculty members also have blogs in concert with faculty members and researchers from other universities, where they discuss current events and their research. Some of these blogs include: The Monkey CageCrooked Timber, and Abu Aardark's Middle East Blog hosted in Foreign Policy
