Department Chair: Tristan Borer
"May you live in interesting times," says the old Chinese adage. Our times are certainly interesting, both at home and abroad, and Connecticut College government and international relations majors gain a deeper understanding of political, economic, and other factors that influence the course of events.
Our department is strong, with talented and dedicated faculty. We all love to teach, and as teacher-scholars we bring cutting-edge scholarship into our courses. We support undergraduate research through the supervision of independent studies and honors theses, and we take academic advising very seriously. Finally, our faculty offer a great diversity in areas of expertise and pedagogical approaches to teaching and learning.
