Gr aduate Study atWe are proud to offer a high quality political science Ph.D. program that trains students in cutting edgemethods of social science research. Class sizes are small, allowing faculty to give students individualizedattention. Graduate students typically participate in research beginning in their first year of study, oftenallowing them to make presentations at academic conferences during their second year. The program isdesigned to prepare students for academic careers, although our graduates have also found the skillsthey acquire to be useful in pursuing careers outside academia.GRADUATE STUDYIN POLITICALSCIENCEGraduate students may specialize in American Politics, with a focus on political institutions, politicalbehavior, public policy, and representation; Comparative Politics, with emphasis on the cross-national,quantitative study of political institutions and electoral behavior in democracies; and InternationalRelations, with emphasis on the quantitative study of international conflict and cooperation.POLITICALSCIENCE.RICE.EDUThe department offers a variety of methodology courses, including advanced statistical techniques,formal and mathematical modeling, survey research, and experimental design. Students with a specialinterest in methodology can enroll in a joint Ph.D./M.A. program with the Department of Statistics toreceive further training in quantitative analysis and an added credential.The department’s size allows only for the admission of students whose interests match the expertise ofthe faculty. Please review the faculty’s research interests and determine whether the program meets yourneeds. Students are required to begin in the fall semester for proper course sequencing. Because graduatestudy in political science is a rigorous and challenging course of study and entails many obligationsoutside of the classroom, students are not expected to work outside the department and those admittedto the program normally receive a full tuition waiver and a generous monthly stipend to meet livingexpenses.W H E R E POLI TICAL SC IE N C E GR ADU AT ES GOIn recent years, Rice Ph.D.s have been placed in tenure-track positions at the following institutions:University of Aarhus, Boise State University, Fudan University, Kansas State University (two),Universidad EAFIT, University of California–Merced, University of Essex, University of Illinois,University of Kentucky, and University of South Carolina.

Recent graduates who have chosen non-academic jobs holdpositions with such diverse organizations as Airbnb, Civis Analytics, the Federal Housing FinanceAgency, and USAA.TEACHINGGraduate students generally serve as teaching assistants for at least two semesters, and most advancedgraduate students who plan to pursue a teaching career are given the opportunity to teach their owncourses. The Center for Teaching Excellence at Rice offers an accredited graduate certificate program inpedagogy that provides interested students with formal pedagogical training, exposure to scholarship onteaching and learning, and practical experience.R ice Univer sit yFor admissionin 2022
