Student having discussion on their group project

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.

Master's Degree in Political Science

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

Political Science/Public Administration Dual Degree

We also offer a dual master's degree with the Sawyer Business School. The Political Science/Public Administration dual degree (MSPS/MPA) will allow you to expand your political knowledge while concurrently refining your administrative skills.

Professional Politics Certificate

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.
