Best Political Science Colleges in Connecticut for 2018

Rank School Name Location Description   Rating
1 Yale University New Haven, CT

What do William Howard Taft, Gerald Ford, George Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush have in common (besides being past U.S. presidents)? All of them were Bulldogs at one time or another. (Rumor has it that Bush Sr. has such fond memories that he kept his old Yale baseball glove in an Oval Office desk drawer during his four years in the White House.)

Today, political science places second only to economics as the most popular major among undergraduates. And if you have a desire to pursue studies that cross departmental boundaries, Yale supports your efforts. Past interdisciplinary concentrations have included urban studies, health politics and policy, political economy, political psychology, and global affairs.
