Political Science

A PhD or Doctor of Philosophy is a postgraduate academic degree awarded by universities. Once one attains a PhD he or she may often be referred to as a doctor.

A Political Science PhD will let you specialize mainly in American Politics, European Politics, Asian Politics, African and Middle Eastern Politics, Comparative Politics, International Relations, Political Methodology, and Political Philosophy.

Even if you choose East Africa’s mythological, enchanting Tanzania; Senegal, land of teranga or South Africa, with its wide opportunities to soak in and serve, research in Africa will be overwhelming.
