The program aims to train political scientists with competence in the discipline as a whole, as well as expertise in specific subfields. To this end, the university offers their students small classes on wide array of substantive and methodological topics.
Their graduate students also receive a great deal of individual attention from faculty members, with many opportunities for collaboration and co-authorship. Their students also gain substantial experience in teaching, both through teaching assistantships and via the opportunity to teach one’s own course. This experience, coupled with the research training they offer, is essential for success in careers in university-level teaching and scholarly research.
Ph.D. candidates who elect to work in nonacademic settings, including think tanks and government agencies, also find that our program’s combination of substantive training and methodological competency is invaluable.
