Student Clubs

At Western Washington University there are lots of ways to be engaged in campus life.  In fact WWU is home to more than 200 student clubs!  You can find more information about clubs here.

For students interested in Political Science, there are three campus-based clubs that provide students with wonderful opportunities for engagement in American politics, international relations, and political economy:

 

The International Affairs Association:  We are a student run club within the Department Related Activities Committee (DRAC) of WWU and the Political Science Department. The International Affairs Association manages the school's highly successful Model United Nations program, Western Model United Nations (WMUN). Western's International Affairs Association provides students with opportunities to travel domestically and internationally to Model United Nations Conferences and explore solutions to contemporary global issues. For more information, please feel free to email us with any questions you might have at information@wwuiaa.com.

 

The Political Science Association:  The PSA at Western Washington University strives to create a safe space for students to gather and discuss political issues affecting our country and the world today. The organization also sponsors the annual PSA Student Conference in May.  PSA is an unbiased organization that invites students from all political backgrounds and beliefs to join our meetings and events. For more information about the PSA club and its activities, please visit us on FaceBook, check out our new website or send an email to psassociation@gmail.com.

 

The Political Economy Club:  The Political Economy Club is a community of students interested in the subject of political economy.  The goal is to create a space for education and discussion and to enhance the interdisciplinary experience of students interested in the subject.  This student group may be of particular interest to students in the Economics/Political Science and Politics/Philosophy/Economics majors. The Political Economy Club meets on Tuesdays from 4-6 pm in VU 567.  For more information, please visit the PEC on Facebook or contact club president Robert Berman at bermanr@wwu.edu.

 

Students may also be interested in joining the national Political Science Honor Society, Pi Sigma Alpha.  Founded in 1920, today there are more than 600 chapters at colleges and universities across the country.  For more information about the organization and membership eligibility, please contact WWU Chapter Advisor Professor Vernon Johnson or visit the Pi Sigma Alpha website.
