Letter from the Graduate Coordinator

Thank you for visiting the Department of Political Science at the University of Florida. Since my arrival in Gainesville, I have seen an amazing transformation in terms of the size and productivity of the faculty as well as the quality and placement of our graduate students. Please take a moment to visit our faculty webpages and our graduate student placement page. These sites will give you a sense of where the department has been and where it is going.

If you are considering applying to one of our many excellent masters programs or doctoral programs, I urge you to begin by reading our admissions webpage, which covers many topics that will guide you through the application process. The topics include the relevant deadlines, what factors are considered in the admissions process, how to apply, and special concerns that international students may have. Our admissions page also provides links to the Graduate School, the Admissions Office, and the International Center. Each of these sources can assist you as you gather information about the opportunities available to graduate students at the University of Florida.

As our financial aid page indicates, the Department offers financial support to the most promising Ph.D. students in the form of teaching and research assistantships. In addition to these sources of financial assistance, students can be nominated for an array of College awards and fellowships, and I encourage you to visit the UF Graduate School Financial Aid website. There you can download an application for a graduate fellowship and/or assistantship.

With over 35 faculty members, the Department of Political Science at the University of Florida blends a diversity of interests with a pluralist intellectual and methodological tradition. The result is an intellectually exciting environment that produces broad-minded and well-trained graduate students. I look forward to inviting you to join this engaging community of scholars.


Dr. Michael Martinez
Graduate Coordinator

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
