Personal Statement

Larry Cushnie, Political Science


Larry holds a doctorate in political science from the University of Washington and a masters in Sociology of Law from the International Institute for the Sociology of Law in the Basque Country. His teaching and research interests are interdisciplinary and span many aspects of American politics, political theory, law, social movements, and political resistance.


Since being hired in 2017, Larry has been building more courses within the political science department to offer students a wide-reaching experience as they prepare to transfer to a four-year institution. His teaching approach strives to be inclusive with an emphasis on social justice and political participation.  Courses include:

POLS&201 - Intro to Political Theory

POLS&202 - American Government

POLS&203 - International Relations

POLS 210 - Cannabis & Social Justice

Larry spends his time outside of South Seattle reining in the madness of his twin children, building his music collection, writing, and reading.
