The Department of Politics offers a Ph.D. degree and terminal M.A. degree, both in politics. The Ph.D. program trains researchers for placement in highly competitive institutions of higher learning and in applied settings such as government, international and nongovernmental organizations, and business. The department offers superb research training in a variety of fields and methodologies, but it is particularly well known for comparative politics, international relations, political philosophy and theory, political economy, quantitative methods, and rational-choice approaches to politics. The terminal M.A. program allows students to study more standard fields of political science and learn basic social science research skills. The M.A. program trains students to take positions in applied settings in government, NGOs, and other areas where a strong understanding of politics along with practical knowledge is required.
