Department Chair: Mark J. Chadsey, JD/PhD
Our department is unique in that it combines two majors: political science—with it's long and distinguished legacy at SUNY Brockport—and international studies, one of the most rapidly growing new majors in the SUNY system. Brockport political science graduates are found in a wide range of outstanding careers—law, business and commerce, politics, trade associations and professional societies, and a host of other fields. International studies graduates typically enter a broad range of professions associated with international affairs, including international trade, foreign policy and diplomacy. Both programs offer solid preparation for teaching careers at all levels.
