Political Science Graduate Program

Doctoral Program Profile


There are departmental MA & PhD guidelines that are updated periodically.  These guidelines direct the department and give an overview.
The department must also follow and align with the policies of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences graduate office (COGA) and
the policies of the Graduate Studies office here at the University of Kansas

Thompson Scholar Summer Research Program information

Graduate student travel funding:  The Department of Political Science will support one conference trip (up to $500) for each PhD student, depending on availability of funds. These are offered on a "once in a lifetime" and "first come, first serve" basis. See the Graduate Director if you are interested. The Graduate School also offers some PhD graduate travel allowance and students should first seek funding from the Graduate School.
