Area leaders: Eric Gonzalez Juenke (Political Science), Nazita Lajevardi (Political Science), Ani Sarkissian (Political Science) and Joseph Cesario (Psychology)

In the fields of political science and psychology, understanding minority politics is instrumental in understanding any other aspect of the disciplines. Given this, the Minority Politics thematic area will leverage MSU's strengths in political science, psychology, gender and LGBTQ studies, criminal justice, Chicano/Latino studies, African-American and African studies, and Muslim studies to establish MSU and the College of Social Science as a national research leader in this field.
