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.

Mark Haynes
 "As time has gone on, I am ever more convinced that the grounding I received in philosophy has been the single most important element of my schooling. It has helped me to be a more critical examiner of all of the multi-leveled and often cynically conceived stuff that comes my way in Washington; it has helped me to maintain my moral compass; it has helped to give me a perspective and a sense of humor that might not otherwise be there."

--Mark Haynes, President, Concordia Power
