South Carolina Political Science Association

The South Carolina Political Science Association (SCPSA) is the state-wide professional association of political scientists. We hold an annual conference held every spring and are the organization behind the Journal of Political Science.

We are a collegial group that enjoys learning about one another's research in order to improve our understanding of politics and the teaching of political science. Scholars of all subfields of political science – American politics, comparative politics, international relations, political theory, and public administration – participate in the SCPSA. Faculty, graduate students and undergraduates are welcome at our annual meetings. Graduate students gain an opportunity to improve their professional development skills in a friendly environment and undergraduates may compete for the Mary Jeanne Byrd Award for best undergraduate paper.
