"Politics is not a science . . . but an art." (Bismark)

Welcome to the world of political science!

My name is Rory O'Brien and I teach Political Science full-time here at Cabrillo College in the Monterey Bay area. I hold both Masters and Doctorate degrees in Political Science from the University of Southern California. With over ten years of teaching experience, my areas of specialization include American politics, political theory and environmental politics and policy. I teach my introductory class on politics in an online format, as well the more traditional classroom setting.

Use the sidebar to the left to navigate through this site. I hope that the resources I've provided will help you in your quest to find out more about the world of political science.
