Professor Shout-Out! Meet Dr. Scott Lemieux

Dr. Scott Lemieux, Political Science Department, Assistant Professor. Has been with Saint Rose since 2009.

About:

  • Where did you attend school? McGill University (BA & MA), University of Washington (PhD)
  • Where have you been employed? Hunter College CUNY and Saint Rose
  • Did you always want to teach?  I always considered it, but it became my exclusive career goal after I worked as a TA for the first time while doing my MA.   It was clearly more rewarding than any other career for me.
  • What classes do you teach at Saint Rose?  American government, the presidency, constitutional law, the Supreme Court, law and society, and the politics of power.
  • Highlight of academic career, thus far:   When my work was cited by the Yale professors Reva Siegel and Linda Greenhouse, who are heroes of mine.   When your work can reach people who have strongly influenced you, it creates a real sense of accomplishment.

    How do you feel about living in the US after growing up in Canada? How does your Canadian experience effect your work on American presidents, etc?

What do you think?
