Jason Jagemann serves as the coordinator of the political science program for undergraduates at Norwich University.

His primary field of expertise is in American politics with emphases in public law, political behavior, and interest group politics. He also has ancillary scholarly and teaching interests in political theory and philosophy, in particular, democratic theory and feminist political thought.

He received his MA and Ph.D. from Western Michigan University and his Bachelor of Arts from the State University of New York, Potsdam, where he majored in political science and minored in U.S. history.

At the undergraduate level, Jagemann regularly offers courses in the fields of public law (Constitutional Law; Civil Liberties) and political behavior (Public Opinion and Political Behavior, Interest Groups, Political Parties, and Social Media and Politics). He also offers the capstone senior seminar on a variety of topics, including Interest Groups and Lobbying, Democracy and Civil Society, the U.S. Supreme Court and Political Behavior.

At the graduate level, Jagemann has taught the Research Methods Seminar for CGCS’s MPA Program.

His research focuses on how institutions, such as Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court, shape the behavior of interest group coalition building and lobbying. Jagemann has published in the fields of interest group behavior and his most recent article “Abortion Politics in the Courts: New Judicial Federalism or the Federal Courts?” appears in the Vermont Bar Journal. Jagemann is also exploring the realm of social media and politics. Jagemann is currently working on an article examining Google Trends data and to what extent these data provide good proxies for issue saliency about the U.S. Supreme Court and its opinions. In the face of a paucity of survey data about public attitudes and interest in the U.S. Supreme Court and its decisions (at least relative to other actors, institutions, and issues in the realm of U.S. politics), Google Trends and analytics provide a useful tool to gauge saliency and public interest in the Court and its cases.

Jagemann serves as the faculty advisor to the Political Science Club, the Pre-Law Society, and the Political Science Honor Society, Pi Sigma Alpha.
