UC Irvine Department of Political Science

The University of California, Irvine (UCI) ranks among the top research universities in the nation and provides an active university environment and a continued commitment to excellence and achievement.

The Department of Political Science has attained a reputation for producing the very best innovative and interdisciplinary scholarship. Faculty are engaged in the study of such key questions as the politics of advanced and democratizing societies, international cooperation and peace, the politics of racial and ethnic minority groups, and the origins of altruism and morality and their impact on world politics.

The department also has a very innovative Ph.D. program with strong interdisciplinary emphases.  Graduate students can pursue concentrations in democracy studies, international relations, political economy/public choice, political psychology, and race and minority politics. The Ph.D. program in Political Science offers big payoffs to our graduate students due to the extended range of inquiry an interdisciplinary program affords.
