Political Science Global Programs

A message from Dr. Nirmal Goswami

It is my pleasure to welcome you to explore opportunities provided by Political Science Global Programs (PSGP). If you are a student with a superior academic record and interested in interdisciplinary global issues then PSGP would be ideal for you. To truly benefit from PSGP you must have an interest in the diversity of the world, an attraction to out-of-the-box thinking, and a sense of adventure!

A global network of customized programs is one of the distinguishing features of Texas A&M University-Kingsville’s Political Science Program. These Programs - Political Science Global Programs (PSGP) - are uniquely structured to introduce students to the politics, history, culture, and economics of key areas in the world; how those may impact the world and what consequences they may have for the United States.

PSGP are developed and managed by Dr. Nirmal Goswami, Professor of Political Science. All PSGP incorporate broadly defined sustainability components.

PSGP have limited summer internships and research assistantships. Funding for these are through the generosity of private donors supporting PSGPs’ goal of providing unique, globally relevant educational opportunities to the best students at TAMU-K.

PSGP believe “global” also means local.  Therefore, PSGP involve local initiatives as well. These feature Civic Engagement Projects with local communities and Learning Communities with area high schools.

PSGP can also assist TAMU-K faculty interested in spending sabbatical time in Bhutan. This opportunity may include partial travel funding support and excellent free housing in Bhutan.
