UCB or UCLA: Poli Sci, philosophy, rhetoric

<p>Both schools are great matches for me. I love both campuses and atmospheres. So the only factor I can use to decide which school to go to is by choosing the one with the stronger academic strength of these three departments. Which school has stronger poli sci, philosophy, and rhetoric departments?</p>

<p>NRC</a> Rankings in Political Science</p>

<p>They are closely ranked, but Cal gets the edge, especially in Poli Sci. </p>

<p>Here is the Political Theory Rankings according to US News</p>

<p>Political</a> Theory - Political Science - Graduate Schools - Education - US News and World Report</p>

<p>Berkeley has the better departments.</p>

<p>I'm not really sure for rhetoric, but for poli sci and philosophy Berkeley has stronger departments</p>

<p>The schools are comparable in all those departments, go where you think you'll be happiest.</p>

<p>I haven't heard much about rhetoric at UCLA or Cal, but for political science and philosophy, I would go with Cal! I've personally taken both types of courses at Berkeley, and they offer very, very good courses in each of these two departments. </p>

<p>But in the end, I don't think UCLA is very far behind either, and I can't speak for their courses.</p>
