Biography

Dr. Prince joined the faculty at Georgia Gwinnett College in 2008. Prior to coming to GGC, Prince held positions at the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville, Ind., East Carolina University in Greenville, N.C. and Bellarmine University in Louisville, Ky. Prince has taught courses in all areas of political science, but his primary focus is American government, public policy and research methodology. Prince received his doctorate in political science from the University of Kentucky. His major areas were American political institutions and public policy. Prince has presented many papers at political science conferences and has published in political science journals.

Prince's research focuses primarily on State Government. His research often tests questions that have only been addressed at the national level at the state level. Currently, Prince is involved in multiple research projects. He is examining the impact of campaign finance laws on contribution patterns in state legislatures, the success of governors in enacting his or her legislative agenda, the impact of Nebraska's unicameral legislature on the efficiency of the legislature and the impact of divided government on the use of the veto in state legislatures. In addition to his research on state politics, Prince is also conducting research that examines the role of research methods in political science programs and classrooms.
