Program Overview

Program Description:
The Department of Political Science offers two Master's degree programs; one a Master of Arts (MA) degree and other a Master of Science (MS) degree. The basic difference between the two programs involves the thesis requirement. The MA program requires students to conduct major research in the preparation of a Master's Thesis. A formal presentation and defense of the thesis before a faculty examining committee is the culminating experience of the program. The MS does not require a thesis. Instead, it offers students two options regarding the culminating experience of their programs; the preparation of a Master's Paper which is then presented to a faculty examining committee or a comprehensive examination covering three major sub-fields of the Political Science discipline. Students who are planning to continue their education in doctoral programs are strongly advised to pursue the MA program.
