Thanks for your questions. This is a broad question, and it depends on a variety of factors. Are you looking at undergraduate or graduate programs? Are you interested in a particular niche or field? Are you looking to study under or work with certain faculty members? Does attending the program depend on financial aid? Usually, a combination of factors like these help determine which is the "best" political science program. Different sources have rankings of colleges based on location, type (public vs. private), and major. Check out US News or Princeton Reviews for some of these rankings on the quality of the programs. Some programs that consistently rank among the best include those at Harvard University, University of California-Berkeley, Columbia University, Princeton University, Georgetown University, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Yale University, MIT, and NYU.
