Graduate Career Council

The Department of Political Science Graduate Career Council connects current and former Ph.D. students to provide a forum for networking and non-academic career development for students and alumni of the department. The Council members are all UCSD political science alumni with careers outside of academia.

If you are a current graduate student or Ph.D. alumni and would like to get in contact with members of the Council, please contact the graduate coordinator or Director of Graduate Studies.
