Department of Political Science

Masters (M.A.) in Political Science

The Political Science Master of Arts program meets the educational and professional needs of three groups of students:

  • Those planning to become high school teachers or instructors in two-year colleges.
  • Working professionals and other adults desiring to improve their qualifications or seeking a greater understanding of political life.
  • Students wishing to prepare for Ph.D. or other advanced study.

The degree requirements are structured, therefore, to provide students with an education which prepares them for a mature grasp of politics, a respect for intellectual integrity, and an ability to communicate effectively. Graduate work in political science is offered in American government and politics, comparative government and politics, international relations, and political thought.
