INTRODUCTION
Political Science is the systematic study of the values, processes, structures and performance of governments and systems. Political analysts address empirical and normative questions. How is power established and maintained? How are collective choices decided and implemented? How do we evaluate alternative political regimes and policy choices? In order to answer such questions political scientists engage in research into the development of the state, the workings of political institutions and processes, the formation of political cultures and ideologies, the relationship between economic classes and systems, types of national political regimes, the causes of revolution, the sources and dynamics of international conflict and cooperation. The Graduate Program in Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania reflects the methodological diversity of the discipline. The Department’s areas of strength include comparative politics and political economy; international political, economic, and military problems; the domestic politics and foreign relations of major powers and geographic areas; American political development; ancient, modern, and contemporary political theory; and constitutional theory. Courses in each field clarify important intellectual and conceptual issues affecting the formulation of research problems and objectives. The option of an individualized specialization makes available unusual opportunities for in-depth study of distinctive national experiences or aspects of political science not constituted as one of the Department’s standard fields. Courses in research methods provide students with the basic knowledge and proficiency required for the selection and application of appropriate research skills in each field of specialization. The Graduate Program offers the Ph.D. degree. Candidates completing the Ph.D. degree follow careers in university teaching and scholarship, and in private or public research institutions. Except for major issues of program structure, which are decided by the entire Political Science faculty, policy for the Graduate Program is decided by the Graduate Executive Committee. The faculty members of the committee also act on individual student petitions. Administration of the program is the responsibility of the Graduate Chair, who is always a tenured faculty member, and the Administrative Coordinator for the Graduate Program.

RESOURCES
Faculty
At Penn, the size of the Political Science graduate program enables students to enjoy close working relationships and individualized study arrangements with faculty members. At present, the permanent faculty includes 31 members, with further expansion planned during the next several years. In addition, the Department frequently welcomes visiting professors in fields of interest to graduate students. At the end of the booklet, a set of faculty profiles portrays the research activities and honors that distinguish Penn’s political scientists. Their publications have won such awards as the top prizes for books and papers bestowed by the American Political Science Association. They have served as editors or board members of journals as diverse as The American Political Science Review, International Organization, World Politics, Orbis, Praxis, Asian Survey, Theory & Event, Politics and Gender, and The Journal of Theoretical Politics. Their fellowships include Fulbrights, Guggenheims, and grants from the National Science Foundation, the Social Science Research Council, the Carnegie Mellon Corporation, the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Russell Sage Foundation, The National Endowment for the Humanities, The American Council of Learned Societies, and the Smith Richardson Foundation. They include among their ranks advisers to numerous local, state, national, and international agencies.

Christopher H. Browne Center For International Politics
The Political Science Department at the University of Pennsylvania recently established the Christopher H. Browne Center for International Politics. The Browne Center supports a variety of programs, including a speaker series, periodic “great debates” on important contemporary issues in world politics, conferences and research seminars, and publication of a working papers series. The Center also invites outstanding senior and junior scholars and experienced practitioners to participate as visiting or post-doctoral fellows. Additional information about the Center is available on its web site (http://www.sas.upenn.edu/brownecip/) or by contacting either the Director, Ed Mansfield, or the Associate Director, Avery Goldstein. The Browne Center is located on the second floor of Stiteler Hall; telephone: 215-898-9025; email: BCIP-Admin@sas.upenn.edu
