The Spring 2017 Political Science Department Newsletter features news about women in politics, events from the Winter 2017 semester, student achievements, and both faculty and alumni spotlights.

Read about this year's Beyond BYU program, which brought over one hundred students from BYU, BYU-Hawaii, and BYU- Idaho to Washington, D.C. for a two-day career and networking event.

Congratulations to Soren Schmidt, who was nominated the April 2017 Valedictorian for the Political Science Department. He and other students were recognized at the BYUPAS Closing Banquet this past March.
The WP Monkey Cage recently published an article entitled, "Americans love to hate foreign aid, but the right argument makes them like it a lot more," written by our own Prof. Darren Hawkins.
Political Science faculty appeared on BYUradio's Top of Mind with Julie Rose several times throughout the Winter 2017 semester. Listen to Prof. Michael Barber and Prof. Quinn Mecham, who spoke twice (second link here).
