Portrait of Michael Thunberg

Michael Thunberg, PhD, is an assistant professor in the History and Political Science Department at Norwich University.

His interest in the political process began at Northern Illinois University where he received his BS in political science. His expertise in American political institutions and the policy process grew at West Virginia University where he received his Master of Arts and Ph.D. While at West Virginia University, he began his research on the American president’s ability to shape the policy process, especially with the use of executive orders. In the classroom, Professor Thunberg teaches new students the political process in his introduction to American government course and teaches advanced courses in the presidency, bureaucracy, and public policy.
