The Graduate Political Science Program at the University of California, Riverside prepares students for research and teaching in academic institutions. The Department offers a small, research-oriented program. We are particularly well suited to train people interested in American political institutions, methodology, mass political behavior (both U.S. and non-U.S.), and political violence and civil-military relations. Additional specializations include, urban politics, women in politics, skepticism, liberalism, modern syndicalist and Marxist theory, rebellion, conflict and revolution, and South American politics.
