M.A.-Political Science;, Ph.D.-Political Science
The primary mission of the Political Science Department's graduate program is to prepare students for careers in academia. The department gives equal emphasis to training students for both the research and teaching sides of such a career. Many of our graduates also successfully apply their political science training to nonacademic careers. The M.A. program offers study in two broadly defined fields: American Politics and International Studies (focusing on our particular strengths in international relations and comparative politics). The M.A. program is structured to give students a comprehensive grounding in the methods, theories, and major sub-fields of Political Science as preparation for the Ph.D. program.
