PhD in Political Science

The doctoral program encourages students to pursue specialized interests and broaden their understanding of political phenomena. The program is an intellectual environment that seeks students with previously demonstrated abilities to develop further the creative and analytical skills necessary for thinking critically, conducting research, and providing original scholarship. The program is a fertile environment for students who bring a wide variety of backgrounds to the study of politics and who have the competence to initiate investigations and work independently. In emphasizing a problem-solving and critical perspective, the department expects students to enrich their knowledge of and proficiency in several traditional discipline elements.
