Program Description: 

​The Department of Political Science offers a Master of Arts (MA) in Political Science. Graduate students interested in Political Science should apply to do an MA in Political Science and NOT to the Cultural, Social and Political Thought program as the Department does not participate in the CSPT Program.

Because of the small number of faculty members and graduate students, graduate programs are individually created for each graduate student. Students typically complete four or more graduate level courses, usually through independent studies or by sitting in on 4000-level undergraduate courses and completing additional work. Besides the coursework, students must complete a thesis, following the requirements of the School of Graduate Studies.

Because so much of an MA in Political Science is conducted through independent studies and through the thesis, prospective graduate students must be highly motivated, able to work independently, and have excellent writing skills. Please note that the Department of Political Science does not accept applications from students who have not lined up the support of a supervisor. Potential supervisors may look for additional background from prospective students beyond those listed above or in the admission requirements of the School of Graduate Studies.
