Alumni and Friends

While there have been degrees in Political Science at Trinity since the 1855, the Department of Political Science itself was founded in 1960, and to commemorate 50 Years since the graduation of its first students in 1963 an alumni weekend took place in August 2013.

Many former political science students are now are leading figures and innovators in the fields of business, journalism, public relations, public service, politics and academia. The Political Science alumni community, around the world, is a tremendous resource for networking and staying in touch with people who have shared the Trinity experience.

We would like to thank the many graduates who continue to contribute to the academic life of the Department long after they have graduated. Students benefit enormously from the exchange of ideas with alumni and we count on you for your support, ideas and expertise. There are numerous opportunities for graduates of to stay connected with each other and with Trinity, so please do keep in touch. You may wish to follow us on twitter at @TCDPoliticalSci.

Thanks to generous donations from alumni, the Department has been able to fund a number of prizes for our best undergraduate students. These donations are much appreciated.
