Student Briefing Series

The Student Research Briefing Series is designed to publish a broad range of topics in American Politics, Comparative Politics, Political Theory and Philosophy, and International Relations. The briefings are intended to enhance student appreciation of student research completed in the Department of Political Science. In addition, the publication hopes to serve as outreach to interested undergraduates and prospective students considering a major in Political Science.

If you are a student interested in contributing to the Student Research Briefing Series or a professor, within the Department of Political Science, and have a student paper you would like to highlight, please contact Peter Morency.

The publications are student-produced and the research done for the briefings are conducted during their undergraduate studies.
