The Department of Political Science at UNH offers two graduate degrees: the Master of Arts in Political Science and the Master of Public Administration. Both provide advanced study in political science, public policy, and public administration for students interested in professions in the fields of government, public service, nonprofit management, electoral politics, education and research, or as preparation for Ph.D. programs. Our degree programs give students the flexibility to tailor their coursework to individual interests within a curriculum that ensures a strong foundation in research methodology, management, and other needed skills in the professions. Our faculty engage in teaching and research activities encompassing the fields of American politics, political thought, comparative/international politics, and public administration.
Both programs are offered to full- and part-time students. The M.A. program is offered in Durham. The M.P.A. program offers evening courses for working professionals at Durham and Manchester.
