MA/ Ph.D Graduate Manual

The Graduate Manual sets forth the policies and procedures for the MA and PhD degrees in Political Science and International Affairs, which are adopted pursuant to regulations of the University of Georgia and its Graduate School.  It does not attempt to cover all University regulations relevant to graduate studies, which are available on the Graduate School website. The University of Georgia’s Graduate School Bulletin takes precedence over this Manual should discrepancies exist between them.  It does, however, provide specific information as to the rules and requirements of the degree programs offered by Political Science and International Affairs.
