SOP Question

Recommended Posts

I'll be applying to PhD programs in political science this fall. By the time I matriculate to the program, I will have received my MA in Russian & East European Studies.To what extent should my SOP focus on my undergraduate versus graduate education? If it makes any difference, my MA research and thesis deal with the same topic -- authoritarian regime stability -- that I worked on as an undergraduate.

I'm not sure what you mean by "focusing on undergraduate vs graduate". Your SOP should focus on research questions you'd like to answer in graduate school, so I personally wouldn't talk a lot about education credentials (classes, grades, etc.). If you did related research in your BA or MA program, then of course you should mention all.
