34 PhD Programs in Political Science 2023


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.

A political science bachelor’s degree is desirable to become a lawyer, journalist, business managers, politicians or medical people. Such professionals are in continuous need for information and need to understand the political, governmental, legal and social implications of their fields.
