Master of Arts in Political Science

The mission of the Master of Arts (MA) program is to prepare students for future graduate study in political science by helping them develop knowledge and skills in political science and research methodology. This program emphasizes general preparation in political science and research.

Areas of emphasis in the M.A. program are focused on the research nature of the degree, including American governmental institutions and political behavior, public law, political theory, public administration and comparative politics, and international politics. M.A. students are required to present themselves for comprehensive examination on their thesis and/or in two of the five areas of emphasis mentioned previously.

Thesis and non-thesis options are available. Thesis requirements include a comprehensive oral examination that covers the student's graduate course work and the literature in two subfields, and the M.A. thesis.

Please view the complete program description of the Master of Arts in Political Science at Idaho State University.

An advisory committee has been created to assist students in developing a curriculum that reflects their individual needs. The program phone number is (208) 282-2211, Stop 8073.

For information about the MA program, contact director Dr. Wayne Gabardi.
