Dr. Jessica Boscarino

Associate Professor of Political Science


I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at Marist College. I received my PhD in American Politics and Public Administration & Policy from the Maxwell School at Syracuse University, and my BA from Middlebury College. My work focuses on the role of issue framing and rhetoric on the policy process, with particular attention to environmental and energy politics. I am currently working on a project that examines environmental advocacy group communication strategies on social media, and the use of visual elements such as photographs to tell persuasive policy stories. I teach courses in American government, public policy, environmental and energy policy, research methods, and environmentalism in popular culture. I am also passionate about my role as the Co-Chair of the Campus Sustainability Advisory Committee at Marist. When not thinking about politics, I enjoy hiking, skiing, and exploring the Hudson Valley and Adirondack Mountains of New York State.
