Welcome to the Pol S Advising blog. See also our new searchable lists of Internship Opportunities and Scholarship & Award Opportunities.

The nature and purpose of this website is to assist students interested in the study of political science by helping them find resources provided by the University of Washington and outside providers. This information is forwarded to this blog as a courtesy and an illustration of possible resources. The Political Science department does not endorse or promote any specific products, services, or vendors.

One of UW’s Environmental Studies program courses this quarter, ENVIR 495C: Environmental Issues in East Asia, might be of interest to your department’s students! This class is popular and will include a virtual collaboration with Taiwanese students! The instructor, Yen-Chu Weng, PhD, also leads a popular study abroad in Taiwan. I was hoping your department could help spread the word about this course through your outlets. The course flyer is attached and there is also a video that the instructor made about the course here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tpq8bxfsdFo

If there is someone else who I should contact about this request please direct me to them instead!
