Christopher D. Moore, Class of 2000
Associate Professor, Bethel University, Department of Political Science
After graduating from Albion in 2000 with a degree in Political Science, Chris was awarded a Presidential Fellowship at the Ohio State University for the doctoral program in political science. At Ohio State, Chris focused in international relations and political psychology. He completed his dissertatio on the organizational dynamics of nationalist-separatist insurgencies in 2008. That summer, Chris joined the faculty at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota. Chris has gone on to publish and present work on military coup d'etat, complext insurgencies, and the influence of Reinhold Niebuhr on American foreign policy. He also teaches classes on international relations in the political science department of Bethel and advises the Bethel Model United Nations club. Chris writes, "I loved the personal connections and mentorships that I was able to establish with professors at Albion. When I had the opportunity to return to a liberal arts environment, my experience at Albion told me I had to take it."
We encourage all former political science majors to contact us for placement information and advice.
We especially encourage alumni to contact us about potential internship and employment opportunities for current Albion political science majors. We are hoping to build a network of Albion political science alumni to continue the strong tradition of the department.
In addition, please let us know what you're doing currently and provide your current contact information.
