PhD Programs in Social Sciences Political Science Government

Government is an area of study that has many branches. Also known as political science, this subject can teach students the importance of politics, international relations and public administration. Courses and programs may present examples of government principles from around the world.

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
