You might be a campaign worker who charts your career from one political campaign cycle to the next. Or a human rights advocate who tackles controversial issues with conviction and purpose. Your dream job might be with a government agency, a special interest group, or a non-governmental organization—steps from our Beacon Hill campus or across the globe.

With two distinct concentrations for specialized training, our master’s program in Political Science (MSPS) will help you get there.

We also offer a Political Science/Public Administration joint degree (MSPS/MPA) with the Sawyer Business School, allowing you to expand your political knowledge while concurrently refining your administrative skills.

A certificate of advanced graduate study in Professional Politics is also available, and is ideal for those with a postgraduate degree who wish to pursue or enhance a political career.
