MA in Political Science

The MA program is a learning environment in which students may further develop their interests in exploring ideas and their ability to think critically and analytically. The structure of the program encourages scholarly inquiry and intellectual growth across a range of political themes. Upon completing an MA, we anticipate most students entering careers in public service or private organizations while others will continue to the PhD program.

The Department of Political Science offers two MA programs:

  • MA Thesis - Students are expected to produce a thesis.
  • MA Event - Students supplement their core curriculum with a Culminating Experience; thesis not required.
