We offer a traditional approach to the M.A. in Political Science to serve the diverse needs of our students and prepare them for a number of scholarly and professional pursuits. Some of our graduates go on to pursue a Ph.D. or law degree, others teach at community colleges or high schools, and others seek careers in government, politics (e.g., as lobbyists, policy analysts, campaign consultants, etc.) and in business and the non-profit sector.

We also encourage political science M.A. students to integrate applied experiences, such as teaching and internships, into their program of study.
