The Patterson School is a graduate department, offering training in the
following interrelated fields:

1. International Relations

Foreign Policy

Comparative Politics

International Economics and Economic DeveIOpment
S. Area Studies

Admission to candidacy for advanced degrees in the Patterson School is
governed by the regulation of the Graduate School.

The Patterson School offers both the master’s and doctor’s degrees. All
students seeking an advanced degree must indicate at the start of their first
semester whether they intend to take the main portion of their work in the
fields of economics, history, or political science. They should then enroll in the
designated introductory methodology course in the discipline in question. This
requirement may be waived if the student has taken comparable graduate level
work previously.

The student must take 30 semester hours for the master’s degree, 24 of
which represent courses and six the thesis. At least 18 of these 24 hours must
be taken from the lists below and, normally, should be equally distributed among
three of the five fields. Under exceptional circumstances up to six hours may be
taken in a related field. A reading knowledge of a modern foreign language, an
acceptable thesis, and a final oral examination on the course work and the thesis
are further requirements. A student may be allowed to take an additional six
hours of course work in place of the thesis under exceptional circumstances.

Candidates for the doctor’s degree ordinarily take 60 hours of course work
(including the master’s thesis). Thirty to forty of these should ordinarily be in a
single discipline. These requirements may be modified, however, depending on
the previous preparation of the student. The students courses should otherwise
be equally distributed among the five fields listed below. In the case of the field
of area studies, the student should select his courses from one of the areas listed.
Half of the courses taken for both master’s and doctor’s degrees must be open to
graduate students only.

Candidates for the doctor’s degree must also pass qualifying examinations
upon completion of the course work. A written examination is given in each of
