Opportunities for Graduate Students
Up to four (of the total of ten) classes toward the masters degree in political science may be from departments and programs outside of the Brooklyn College Political Science department. Many students take advantage of this opportunity to take classes in abroad, which provides invaluable exposure to other countries and can be an important part of job and academic applications. Since these programs range from full semesters of study to short summer group trips, there are possibilities to fit each student’s schedule and interests.
Below are links to programs available to masters students. These programs are divided into two sets. The first lists programs sponsored by CUNY (as well as by SUNY). The second lists programs by country.
In addition to these programs, masters students may make their own arrangements to study abroad, which the Political Science Department can help set up. In the past, masters students have studied in countries as diverse as Colombia, China, and South Africa. If you are interested in studying in a particular country, but do not have the necessary contacts or information, please see the graduate chair to develop a plan.
Since we plan to expand our study abroad program through exchanges and other programs with universities abroad, we welcome additional suggestions from students and will continually be adding to the list.
