Additional Resources

Incoming Students

Welcome to the UW Bothell MA in Policy Studies!

This page will be updated regularly with important information as we approach the start to Autumn Quarter 2019. Information will also be emailed to students but please check this page for the most up-to-date details.


Listservs: Your cohort will have a dedicated listserv with all of your UW email addresses. This cohort-specific one will be the general means for the Graduate Programs to communicate to you program information, course information, dates and deadlines, and more. If you wish to use this to communicate with your colleagues, you are welcome to do so, however please keep in mind that the Grad Office staff and the Policy Studies Director, Keith Nitta, receive these emails. The first time you send an email to this list your email may be held for moderation causing a delay, but after that first time you should be all set.  

Funding Announcements: We manage an additional email account for funding announcements (see my email). From this email address you’ll receive notifications of funding opportunities both within and outside of UW. You may see scholarships, fellowships, internships, jobs, teaching posts, etc. Some posts may be relevant for you while others may not be so use your own filter. 


For information on how to register, go to the Policy Studies registration page.
