The MA in political science offers specialization in one of several fields of the discipline which prepares the graduate to begin employment or continue study for a PhD. The fields are American Government, Comparative Politics, International Relations, Political Theory and Public Law. Those seeking training in public administration should apply for an MPA.
Graduate study carries a different emphasis from undergraduate training. Undergraduate education in the liberal arts should give a breadth of exposure to the arts and to the natural and social sciences, as well as a depth that comes from specialization within a single discipline. Similarly within a discipline, undergraduates usually are encouraged to take a sampling of courses from as many fields, subfields, and individual professors as possible. While graduate education reinforces understanding of a discipline like political science, it also calls for specialization within one of the five sub-fields listed above.
