Master's Degree
Our department offers two M.A. programs. Peace, Conflict and Security Studies helps prepare for careers in intelligence, foreign policy, or international development, while those interested in American politics and/or careers in public administration or public policy analysis might instead be interested in Politics and Policy Studies.
Regardless of which path they pursue, our students are trained in research techniques, critical thinking and analysis through a combination of required coursework and research-related requirements. For more questions about our graduate program, please contact our graduate coordinator.
