About this Degree
The MA degree in Political Science and International Affairs at the University of Georgia is administered jointly by the Departments of Political Science and International Affairs and is designed as a preparation for the PhD. Students must complete three classes in research methods, as well as courses in the program’s offered fields. Between the two departments, courses are offered in international relations, comparative politics, American politics, law and courts, and political theory.
The MA program in Political Science and International Affairs at the University of Georgia invites students who wish to study politics in its many forms, but who also want to develop the analytic skills necessary to achieve mastery in their areas of study. Dedicated to providing the substantive political knowledge any advanced student of politics would want and need, the program also provides the exposure to cutting-edge research tools that distinguishes the very best graduate programs. Some faculty are senior members of the discipline, while others are rising stars who are already receiving national recognition. All are committed to the core mission of the graduate program.
