Political Science Graduate Workshop

The Political Science Graduate Workshop (PSGW) focuses on personal and professional development for current graduate students in the political science department. The PSGW's mission is to "foster communication and information-sharing among the grad students and faculty members of the political science department and to promote professional development opportunities for the grad students." The topics covered in PSGW range from topics in graduate life (health and balance, financial life) to discipline professional development (publishing, communications). This workshop convenes several times per semester each academic year.
