The 10th University of California campus offers graduate and undergraduate degrees in Political Science. We welcomed our second class of Ph.D. students during Fall 2013 and encourage applications from individuals interested in conducting cutting edge research at the first American research university in the 21st century.

We hope that our Web site answers many of your questions about political science at UC Merced. If you cannot find the answer to your question here, please contact us.
