The University of Oklahoma has a number of graduate programs designed to equip our students with the knowledge, skills and passion to pursue meaningful careers in political science, public policy, government and public service. The Political Science Department houses three nationally recognized degree programs. 


Master of Arts in Political Science

At University of Oklahoma  we also house a master’s degree in political science, a two-year, research-based program. Many M.A. students pursue this degree to enhance their knowledge base and skill set in teaching or with the expectation of going on to a doctoral program.

With such a diverse set of high-quality graduate programs, the University of Oklahoma is a great place for individuals who are looking for graduate programs in government and public service. We are proud to say that many of our alumni have gone on to fantastic careers, and we look forward to helping you pursue your goals as well. Boomer Sooner!
