Degrees offered: M.A.

The Political Science department offers two exciting paths to pursue graduate work: an M.A. degree, which can generally be completed in one calendar year (September to September) through the completion of courses and either a major research paper or a master's thesis; and the M.A. internship option that combines the M.A. coursework with a 6-month paid internship and valuable hands-on work experience.
