Program Description:

Since its inception in the 1920?s, Duke University has been a major center for graduate education in political science. The Department aims, now as in earlier years, to integrate normative, empirical, theoretical, and policy concerns. More than many other Departments, it insists on breadth and well-roundedness in its graduates. At the same time, it strongly encourages and assists early concentration on professional research and publication. Both goals are served by close and supportive relations with the faculty and with other students. Ordinarily about 10-12 new graduate students enter each year. The ratio of students in residence to faculty is approximately 2:1.
