Professor Jeffrey Roberg teaches courses in comparative politics and international relations. His research and teaching previously focused on the former Soviet Union and its successor states, exploring issues of human rights, nuclear proliferation, and the relationship of the Soviet Scientific community and political elites. More recently he has expanded his human rights and environmental politics research and teaching interests to include work on Latin America. He regularly leads study abroad courses in Latin America and post-Soviet states during Carthage's J-Term.
His educational background in political science includes both a Ph.D. and A.M. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a B.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles. Prof. Roberg joined the Carthage faculty in 1997 and was named the Carthage Distinguished Teacher of the Year in 2003. Read more
"Dr. Jeffrey Roberg is my favorite professor at Carthage. He continually pushes and challenges students to perform at their highest level, while encouraging involvement both in and out of the classroom."
