BartBrown Posted June 4, 2010 Share Posted June 4, 2010 Hello all, I'll be a Senior in the Fall and I'm planning to apply for PhD programs in Political Science (Comparative Politics) this year. I'm still in the midst of trying to identify the programs I will apply to and am hoping to get some advice. I've been speaking with faculty at my school, but I figure more advice never hurts. I'm a Poli Sci/Spanish Major, Econ minor at a small and not highly ranked LAC. 3.8 Cum. GPA and a 4.0 in both majors. Upper level coursework since first-year 3 years as a poli sci research assistant with several acknowledgements in conference papers and journal articles 5 months independent field work experience in Latin America Hopefully will have a paper in an undergraduate journal and/or a conference in the Fall Taking GRE soon My main interests are Latin American Politics, Violent and Non-violent Contention, Identity (mainly race/ethnicity), Democratization and Democratic Theory Methodologically I'm looking for programs that are not entirely Quant I've done some research and identified programs with faculty members that I'm interested in. However, I'm hoping to see what people's suggestions might be for programs that I would be qualified for that have relevant faculty and strong programs in my interest areas. Thanks in advance to anyone that has advice! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
