About the Program
The Political Science program of Emory University encourages "learning by doing" through close faculty-student mentoring. With roughly thirty faculty and cohorts of about seven students per year, our high faculty-student ratio ensures that each student receives significant guidance throughout the program. These faculty-student partnerships lead to collaboration on published scholarly works and major research projects.
The graduate curriculum in political science incorporates five fields:
- American Government and Politics
- Comparative Politics
- International Relations
