The American Government subfield focuses on theory-driven applied questions in political science. The American field also benefits considerably from interaction with the broad and deep social scientific and policy community at Georgetown University. There is also substantial interaction with colleagues in the international relations, comparative politics, and political theory subfields, especially those dealing with the formation and impact of American foreign policy and public policy. In the department’s graduate program in American Government, there is an emphasis on developing both strong statistical skills and a deep knowledge of either a national institution or a specific aspect of the political process.
