Graduate Resources

The expertise of the School of Public and International Affairs is oriented to challenge our understanding of politics in fundamental ways and is positioned to translate new discoveries about those fundamentals into practical analysis that advances thinking in the political world. The school's faculty and students, thus, engage in pursuit of knowledge at the nexus of theory and action, advancing UC's overall institutional strengths in applied learning and discovery.
