Andre P. Audette

Associate Professor of Political Science, Monmouth College

I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at Monmouth College (Monmouth, IL). My main areas of teaching and research are in American politics and law, especially political behavior, public opinion, and political psychology. I often focus on the intersection of religion, race, gender, and other identity characteristics. My legal interests are primarily in constitutional law, especially First Amendment jurisprudence, constitutional interpretation, and comparative constitutional law.

I was born and raised in Rice Lake, WI, and began working on political campaigns there from an early age. I went on to complete my BA at the University of St. Thomas (St. Paul, MN) with degrees in political science and Justice and Peace Studies. In 2016, I earned my Ph.D. in political science from the University of Notre Dame (Notre Dame, IN). In addition to my interest in political science, I also have experience in conflict resolution and educational psychology.
