For most students, arriving at a course of study will involve selection of two focus fields from among the five fields of American Politics, Comparative Politics, International Relations, Political Methodology, and Political Theory and a course-out minor from either one of the above fields, a graduate interdisciplinary specialization, or a graduate minor.
In addition, students may choose one or more departmental specializations in the fields of Formal Theory, Political Economy, Political Psychology, or Race, Ethnicity, and Gender. More individualized programs emphasizing either breadth or depth may be developed in consultation with an academic advisor.
