Top 25 Graduate Schools in Political Science, Ranked the Right Way

What’s more important, the prestige that comes with the name of your school, or the likelyhood that your school will get you a job?

The following results come from a study done by Benjamin Schmidt and Matthew Chingos that ranked Phd programs in Political Science based on how well placed their graduating Phd’s were into tenure track positions in Universities (it didn’t rank them based on positions into other fields like Government, think-tanks, liberal arts colleges, or community colleges, etc–but that would also be very interesting).

  1. Harvard
  2. Stanford
  3. Michigan
  4. Rochester
  5. Chicago
  6. California, Berkeley
  7. Duke
  8. UCLA
  9. Northwestern
  10. California, SD
  11. MIT
  12. Yale
  13. Princeton
  14. Cornell
  15. Columbia
  16. Washington University
  17. Michigan State
  18. Ohio State
  19. Emory
  20. UNC
  21. Penn
  22. Florida State
  23. Johns Hopkins
  24. Brandeis
  25. University of Washington

Of course, Harvard ends up on top, but there are some surprises.  I didn’t expect some of them to be as high, and I certainly didn’t expect Yale and Princeton to “lag” so far behind.
