Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)
Announcement for 2020-21 Admissions Cycle:
We have decided to pause our AY 2020-2021 admissions cycle. We do not take this decision lightly. However, given the known and unknown effects of COVID-19 on the career opportunities of our graduate students, it is important that we remain flexible and ready to assist them in these radically uncertain times. This, we believe, is part of our goal of creating conditions of support. Graduate research is central to our mission as a department. We remain committed to creating the conditions of support as we prepare the next generation of political scientists grappling with central problems in American politics, international relations, comparative politics, and political theory. We believe that this is the appropriate path in aiding our existing students and we will be ready, in the future, to support all of our graduate students when we resume admissions for AY 2021-2022.
