Overview

Manchester University benefited from Cordier's faculty position and, through his relationship with the United Nations, Manchester's Peace Studies Institute was awarded NGO status with the UN, a distinction we still hold. This has allowed Manchester to attract a number of renowned public figures and policy makers to our campus, among them: Eleanor Roosevelt, Martin Luther King Jr., Barry Goldwater, Ralph Nader and Jesse Jackson. These speakers, in turn, have helped provide perspective, depth, and experience to those at the University interested in history and politics.

Education

The Political Science program at Manchester University provides a systematic study of politics, that is, of collective decision-making and the interactions between power and interest. Political scientists seek to explain human behavior by focusing on people's preferences, resources, and interests; on institutional rules and norms; and on socio-economic conditions.
