The SCPSA is the state-wide professional association of political scientists. Their main activities are an annual conference held every spring and the publication of the Journal of Political Science that is distributed to all SCPSA members. They 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 sub-fields 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 Jean Byrd Award for best undergraduate paper.
