The Department of Political Science at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, is pleased to announce a new PhD program in Political Science. The substantive emphasis of the program is Global Studies.
The PhD program offers major concentrations in Comparative Politics and International Relations, and minor concentrations in American Politics, Comparative Politics, International Relations, and Political Theory.
Globalization is a dominant characteristic of politics in the twenty-first century. The program focuses on the causes, consequences, and limitations of the political, economic, and cultural aspects of globalization.
The PhD program is intended to prepare its graduates for careers in academic institutions, government (at all levels), and business and industry. Increasingly, a cross-national, cross-cultural understanding of political processes is essential for education, public policy, and commerce.
In a number of ways Las Vegas is an ideal site for such a program. Las Vegas is a popular destination for international travelers, and Las Vegas firms have launched enterprises in a number of nations around the world.
Founded in 1957, UNLV has been transformed from a branch college to a thriving urban research institution of 28,000 students and 3,300 faculty and staff. The 350-acre main campus, located on the southern tip of Nevada in a desert valley surrounded by mountains, is home to more than 220 undergraduate, masterís, and doctoral degree programs.
The application deadline for the fall of 2008 is June 1. For further information please visit our website:
