MA in Political Science

Most students interested in the study of political science at the graduate level are admitted to the PhD program directly. The department awards a co-terminal MA in conjunction with a BA offered through the College of Arts & Sciences (CAS). Please refer to the BA/MA in Political Science section of the CAS Bulletin for information and requirements. The department can also award an MA to a PhD student who requests it and has completed all the requirements for the PhD except the dissertation. Please refer to the PhD in Political Science for explicit requirements.
