In 2017, the former Department of Political Science and the former Global and Area Studies Program merged to create the School of Politics, Public Affairs & International Studies or SPPAIS.
This new institution boasts more than 20 faculty members, almost 300 students, and
two undergraduate and three graduate programs: Political Science (B.A./B.S., M.A.),
International Studies (B.A., M.A.), and the Master of Public Administration (M.P.A.).
SPPAIS has taken over the entire south side of the Arts & Sciences Building; please
The video below featuring former graduate student Thao Nguyen (M.A. in Political Science
& Environment & Natural Resources) is a great example of the student experiences you
may find as a part of SPPAIS and the University of Wyoming.
Meet your people!
