PhD Program

If you are interested in working with me or some of my fantastic colleagues in the political science department, please consider applying our PhD program! Our application deadline is January 15, 2020.

Our department's strengths are in political economy and political behavior, with a focus on quantitative methods. We offer a competitive 5-year tuition and stipend package.

I personally supervise students working on comparative politics, political economy, development, democratization, and South Asia (see my research page). If you have any questions, I am happy to answer them by email at adasgupta3 (at) ucmerced.edu.
