Many Politics courses include detailed simulations that help students develop collaborative and communications skills. Every year, Earlham students organize and run a large and successful Model UN conference for regional high school students – which requires an understanding of foreign policy. The Politics capstone experience calls on students to reflect on their Earlham experience and consider the connections between various aspects of the College experience, including courses, internships and off-campus studies. Recent student-faculty research projects include a study of the issues surrounding orbital Earth science research and creating a policy brief recommending the development of a college garden on campus.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts, including the sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
