Students interested in conducting a PhD in the Political Studies Department must have a  MA in Political Studies or a related topic.  An MA thesis completed with a grade of 86. A 86 GPA is also required.

The department will examine each applicant's history to determine what additional courses, if any, will be required. Students who have completed an non-thesis track MA will have to renew their MA studies to include a thesis and complete the requirements for that degree.

Applicants interested in the Presidential Scholarship program should contact their office directly in the Sal Building (404) room 7.
