Welcome to the website of the School of Politics, Philosophy, and Public Affairs at Washington State University. The School offers a full range of undergraduate and graduate courses leading to the B.A. degrees in Political Science and in Philosophy, the M.A. degree in Political Science (Certificate in Global Justice and Security Studies), the Master of Public Affairs degree (offered at the Vancouver campus), and a Ph.D. degree in Political Science. Students who graduate from our programs are imbued with a desire to engage in life-long learning and are also very competitive in a variety of job markets.
In addition to teaching and public service, faculty and graduate students engage in problem-oriented research addressing some of the most pressing political and philosophical issues of our time including global climate change and environmental policy, bioethics, health policy, national security and international terrorism, political communication, global justice, and political psychology. Many of the faculty embrace interdisciplinary research programs which allows for a multi-dimensional approach to addressing societal issues and problems.
We welcome inquiries from current and prospective students, alumni, news organizations, and the general public.
