Undergraduate Political Science Association

The purposes and objectives of the Undergraduate Political Science Association (UPSA) are:

  • to promote a better understanding of political science
  • to foster a relationship between faculty and students by providing a channel of communication between political science student and political science faculty
  •  to represent the undergraduate political science students before other departmental groups
  •  to sponsor projects that may be of specific interest to political science students, and
  •  to motivate and inspire undergraduates to engage in political science

Membership in the UPSA is open to any Vanderbilt University undergraduate student who is majoring in political science, minoring in political science, or who has completed or is currently enrolled in at least one political science course.
