Although every university worthy of the name is about the creation and dissemination of knowledge, we feel Chicago is more committed than other places. People at Chicago know what they care about most and what they enjoy most: learning, testing, critiquing, disputing, convincing, persuading, dissuading, explaining, and researching. The result is that there are only a few places on the planet that are in Chicago's league when it comes to research, teaching, and the intensity of intellectual life. That is why we believe Chicago is one of the most interesting, lively, cutting-edge places to study, research, and teach political science.
