 Government Home
Cornell's Department of Government is devoted to the study of political power, political institutions, public policy, public opinion and participation, political economy, interactions between citizens and governments, and between governments and non-governmental actors, on the one hand, and the international system, on the other.
The field of Government at Cornell is divided into four subfields: American politics, comparative politics (the institutions and political processes of other nations), political theory and philosophy, and international relations (or transactions between states, international organizations and transnational actors).
While these subfields (together with methodology courses) summarize the focus of the department, the boundaries separating them are regularly crossed when the issues at hand - as is so often the case - require multiple perspectives.
