The Political Science Department at the Barbara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs at Texas Southern University is a part of the overarching mission of educating All of Texas on the importance and power of the underlying system of self governance by 'We the People' of Texas and as citizens of the United States of America. Our commitment to teaching and education is grounded in history focused on the present and preparing for an ever-changing and dynamic future. Under the leadership of Dr. Michael O. Adams the Political Science Department is not only educating students to be more civic minded, involved and committed to improving their community, but we are also focused on educating the next generation of public administrators who must lead in this new era of technological, economic and global change.
