Pursue advanced study in political science theories, methods, and applied knowledge, with concentrations in American Politics, Comparative Politics, International Relations, Political Theory, and Public Policy. Master’s students take courses alongside doctoral students, taught by professors engaged in cutting-edge research in these fields.

Our graduates have successful careers in government agencies, nonprofits, media, think tanks, political campaigns, and the private sector, and pursue further study in Ph.D. programs. Master’s students contribute to the vibrant, close-knit, international, and diverse intellectual community of the Political Science program, with many workshops and colloquia.

Affiliated research centers include the Center for Urban Research, the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality, and the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies.
