Kevin Hula, Ph.D.

  • Academic Focus Political Science

As a professor of political science at Loyola, Dr. Kevin Hula's teaching and research focus on American politics, particularly interest groups—from lobbyists to the coalitions that have emerged in the ongoing debates over human cloning and stem cell research—and the executive branch of U.S. government. His newest course, a seminar on intelligence agencies, national security, and the executive branch, makes for lively discussion. Over the years, Dr. Hula has brought intelligence officers, senior agency leaders, and former students who work in intelligence agencies to speak to his classes. Dr. Hula received both his Master of Arts and his Ph.D. in Political Science from Harvard University, and his bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Germanic Languages and Literature from the University of Kansas. A former recipient of the Harry W. Rodgers III Distinguished Teacher of the Year Award and Loyola's Educator for Life Award, his book, Lobbying Together, was named Winner of the 2000 Emerging Scholar Award of the American Political Science Association.
