Graduate School Application for Admission
Graduate students are often involved in research projects led by department faculty members. To the extent that funds permit, this participation takes the form of research assistantships, which are normally half-time appointments for one or more quarters. Departmental, Graduate School, other University moneys, and external grants are used to support such appointments. Student-faculty collaboration has generally led to opportunities for dissertation research and the publication of joint articles.
The department is committed to innovative uses of technology in the field of Political Science. We are working hard to develop one of the finest computer classrooms at any Political Science department in the country.
Graduate students across the University of Washington campus may be invited to participate as CLASS Graduate Fellows. The primary requirement for eligibility as a fellow is an intellectual interest in socio-legal study and a demonstrated commitment to participation in CLASS-sponsored graduate seminars, colloquia series, conferences, and related activities. Graduate students may be nominated for the Fellows program either by themselves or by affiliated faculty; conferral of the Fellows status and graduation certificate will be made by the CLASS faculty standing committee.
