Graduate Students

Our graduate students hail from a wide range of backgrounds and often specifically choose Rutgers for our Women & Politics Program, which allows them combine doctoral training in gender theory and analysis with coursework in other subfields of political science. The result is a well-rounded educational and research experience, leading our students to write cutting-edge dissertations informing research in political science as well as women, gender, and sexuality studies. Below you will find links to profiles of our current graduate students, as well as an overview of visiting M.A. and Ph.D. students and recent alumni with their current affiliations.
