POLS Faculty

GSE faculty create  the intellectual foundation for POLS.  They are experts and global leaders in a broad range academic disciplines. They include anthropologists, economists, historians, neuroscientists, psychologists and sociologists among many others. Affiliated faculty with appointments throughout Stanford augment the opportunities afforded POLS students. Porous boundaries between schools enable POLS students to enroll in coursework across the entire Stanford curriculum. Faculty members practice the methods and theories from their own innovative research and are models of the kind of pioneering spirit that we aim to foster in our students.

The following faculty teach many of the courses frequently taken by POLS students. Take the time to explore these and other faculty profiles and see how their work might influence and inspire your own inquiry.
