Fields of Focus

Coursework and examination requirements for the graduate program are organized in six traditional subfields of political science, each with their own designated faculty: comparative politics, formal theory and methodology, international relations, public policy, political theory, and U.S. politics. Many faculty and graduate students work at the intersections of these fields, as well as other disciplines like anthropology, economics, ethnic studies, history, law, philosophy, or sociology, but these groups constitute the basic organizational building blocks of the program.
