Foreign Study Program

The University has established formal student exchange programs with a number of major foreign universities. Graduate students in political science are eligible to apply for financial assistance to spend a year of study at such eminent institutions as the Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris, Kobe University, and the University of Tubingen.

Research Opportunities for Graduate Students

Graduate students are often involved in research projects led by department faculty members. To the extent that funds permit, this participation takes the form of research assistantships, which are normally half-time appointments for one or more quarters. Departmental, Graduate School, other University moneys, and external grants are used to support such appointments. Student-faculty collaboration has generally led to opportunities for dissertation research and the publication of joint articles.
