Reasons the Political Science Master’s program may be attractive to students:

  • Faster! Get a Master’s in a year and a summer instead of two years.
  • Cheaper! Get some credits while as an undergraduate and finish sooner.
  • Get graduate experience early on to help inform you what graduate studies are like and help you make up your mind about continued academic study
  • Helps in a competitive job environment as our first cohort has gone on to interesting and exciting jobs already (research analyst, global trade analyst, project manager at GS Strategy Group, and a fundraising/prospect research coordinator for a Indian non-profit focusing on health care).
