MA in Government

The Master of Arts in Government (MA GOVT) is a graduate degree that prepares students for careers in government, politics, law, non-profit organizations, education, research, and the public sector. The MA GOVT is fundamentally a graduate program design to provide students disciplinary expertise in political science. The course of study includes core seminars in each of the main sub-fields of political science: Political Philosophy, American Government, International Relations, Comparative Politics, Public Law, and Public Administration and Policy. The core seminars in each of these field subjects, as well as one in research methods, are expected to be completed in the first year of graduate study, with the second year composed of elective specializations and thesis writing in one of the sub-fields. 

To find out more, please contact Michael Hail.  To begin your enrollment online, please visit the Graduate School page.

“Professors in the philosophy program at MSU have always taken a personal interest in me and I have found them to be approachable and knowledgeable about a wide range of topics from ancient to contemporary philosophical scholars and their research. The philosophy program has equipped me with critical thinking and analytical skills I know will serve me well as I prepare to take exams for entrance into graduate programs”.
