The University of Notre Dame’s Department of Political Science has been named one of the top 10 undergraduate programs in political science nationwide, according to a list developed by College Factual.
“The ranking is exciting for us,” said Michael Desch, professor and chair of the department. “It is always good to get this sort of external validation.”
College Factual rates schools and programs with an emphasis on objective data, stressing outcome-based metrics such as early-career and mid-career salaries. The ranking also considers percentage of students in the university in that major and the availability of courses in related subjects.
