“There are invariably international students in class, they are encouraged to offer their perspectives,” says Dr Joseph Alulis.
In addition to internships in the city and other courses like Chicago Politics, Alulis says, “I encourage students in the International Politics course to attend lectures sponsored by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, and students are informed of relevant museum exhibitions.”
The personal connection between politics and government and between professors and students is important to Alulis. “The faculty are actively engaged in their own research, with opportunities for students to participate. Classes are rigorous and students get a lot of personal attention,” he says.
