Overview of the Program

The M.A. in Political Science provides our graduates with theories, methods, and practical understanding necessary to succeed in:

  1. Careers in policy and intelligence analysis

  2. Administration in local and international governmental or non-governmental organizations

  3. Political consulting, marketing and campaigning

  4. Research or college-level teaching in political or social sciences.

The undergraduate degree provides students with a broad knowledge of political science; graduate education is an opportunity for more focused study. Masters students will earn most of their credits in courses sharing a common theme, such as a sub-field of the discipline (American Politics, Comparative Politics, Political Theory, Public Law or Methodology), a world region, a particular policy issue area, or a phase of political development.

The requirements of the degree include a set of four core classes and an additional minimum number of remaining hours that may focus in the student's area(s) of interest and should help to contribute to the basis of the thesis project. The program offers a variety of course in several sub-fields, and students may also choose to take courses in related fields as well.
